MORE than 100 Southampton campaigners will head to the capital for a day of demonstrations - with one coach funded by a TV star. Historian Dan Snow has funded one of the buses taking protestors to London on October 20 for what is expected to be the biggest anti-Brexit public protest to date. The New Forest-based presenter will be giving out free t shirts to those on board - who are all heading to the capital to take part in the People's Vote march.

The London event is expected to draw more than 100,000 people.

Campaigners are calling on Parliament to demand a 'people's vote' on the final Brexit deal.

Chef Delia Smith and Dragon's Den's Deborah Meaden are expected to head up the march.

London mayor Sadiq Khan is also said to be in support of the event.

Co-chair of Southampton for Europe group Charlotte Sunley said: "I am marching because I believe that given the reality of what a deliverable Brexit actually means for our society, a majority of people in the UK now want the country to stay in the European Union.

"We have two full coaches going so approximately 112 people plus many of our supporters are travelling via train or making their own way up, so we're estimating at least 150.

"Whether we voted to leave or remain in the 2016 referendum, this Government has failed on Brexit.

"No one voted to make themselves poorer, to damage our NHS or to put jobs at risk and as this reality comes to light, people have changed their minds.

"What we were once told would be “the easiest deal in history” is now a shaky proposal that satisfies no one or a disastrous no-deal Brexit.

"No form of Brexit remotely matches up to the promises made by the leave campaign in the referendum and every Brexit scenario will leave the UK worse off.

"We are demanding our democratic voice be heard on Brexit."

This weekend's protest follows a June demonstration - which organisers say brought 100,000 people to march.

Campaigners from Southampton for Europe will join Dorset for Europe. The six coaches are scheduled to leave at 9am on Saturday from Southampton Airport Parkway.

The march starts at midday from London's Park Lane.

It will then march to Parliament Square to hear speeches in support of a People’s Vote from 2pm.
