Anti-Brexit campaigners from across Worcestershire started the new year with a ceremonial walk and flag wave on the Herefordshire Beacon.

Worcestershire for Europe group chair Stuart Thomson said: “We held our now traditional gathering at the top of the Herefordshire Beacon.

"The event was even bigger this year due to growing support to remain part of the European Union and to stop the badly lead, mismanaged failure that is Brexit.

"It was great to have our friends from Malvern, Ledbury, Hereford and Bromsgrove with us today.

"The European Union stands for peace and friendship between like-minded nations and there is no better time to celebrate that than at New Year.

"We now have a busy few weeks ahead ensuring our MPs deliver on the will of the people as it stands in 2019, and that is to have a People’s Vote on the Brexit deal, with an option to remain”.
