An estimated 1 million people flooded the streets of central London on Saturday in favour of a final say on Brexit.

Those in attendance demanded a so-called “People’s Vote”, which would allow voters to choose how the UK exits the European Union together with the option for the country to remain a member.

Organisers People’s Vote said some 1 million demonstrators took part, which they said made it one of the biggest protests in British history. Around 700,000 joined a similar rally in October.

The march featured people of all ages who were lead in chants for a “people’s vote”.

Many people wore yellow fluorescent stickers reading “Bollocks to Brexit. It’s not a done deal”.
