Brexit supporters and opponents have been marching and demonstrating across the country today.
In Nottinghamshire, Nigel Farage spoke to around 200 people from the top of an open-top bus before leading a march towards Beeston.
The former UKIP leader addressed pro-Brexit crowds in the village of Linby this morning as part of his 270-mile long March to Leave between Sunderland and London.
But in the capital today, organisers of the Put It To The People March say more than a million people turned up – making it one of the largest demonstrations in British history.
Aerial footage of both marches show the difference in scale between the two rallies.
Mr Farage told his supporters in Nottinghamshire there were 17.4 million people present – referring to the number of people who voted to leave the EU in 2017.
His reply came in response to questions about whether he is concerned about being outnumbered by the anti-Brexit event being held in London.
The size of the demonstration in Westminster will culminate with a rally in front of Parliament demanding a second referendum on the terms of Britain’s withdrawal from the EU.
The numbers eclipsed the last major protest held in October when an estimated 700,000 descended on central London.
The march has locked down central London all day with tube trains crammed and some underground services being forced to miss the stop at Green Park station.
It will continue to pile on the pressure for Theresa May , who is also facing a petition to revoke Article 50 signed by more than four million people.
A sea of blue and yellow dominates the scene with with EU flags waving throughout Whitehall and Westminster.
Protesters are holding placards demanding the prime ministers deal is put to the people for an official vote on the agreement to leave the EU.
The demonstration attracted political heavyweights including the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan , Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and former deputy prime minister Lord Heseltine.
But Mr Farage referred to the protesters in London as “sore losers” after signing up “celebrities and disgraced politicians”, he told the Nottingham Post .
“I for one am proud to be marching with and meeting ordinary, hard working members of the British public, who are sick and tired of the distain shown towards them by the out of touch elite,” he added.
John Longworth, chairman of Leave Means Leave, said: “It has been clear from the hundreds of locals and ordinary voters we have spoken to over the past week that people across the country are sick of elections and referendums.”
The March to Leave will finish its cross country journey next Saturday at 4pm with a protest outside Parliament.
