Tens of thousands are expected to attend the Put it to the People march in London today.
Protesters seeking a referendum on the final Brexit deal will once again descend on the capital after 700,000 people attended a similar march in October.
Organised by the People’s Vote, Britain for Europe and Open Britain, marchers will demand that the public be given a final say on the UK leaving the EU.
Starting on Park Lane near Marble Arch and Bond Street tube stations around midday, the march will finish up at Trafalgar Square.

Heidi Allen, the former Conservative MP who joined the Independent Group last month, hopes today’s march will build on the momentum created by this week’s online petition to revoke Article 50 – which now has over three million signatures.
Today’s marchers will take heart from news Labour’s deputy leader Tom Watson has backed a second referendum as a way of breaking the impasse at Westminster.
“It can only begin to bring the country back together again if we all have a Final Say – and then live with the result,” he says.
