Protestors took to the streets of Colchester to welcome an anti-Brexit battle bus.

Dozens of pro-EU campaigners gathered outside the town hall, in High Street, for the arrival of the B*****ks to Brexit tour bus.

Colchester Council leader Mark Cory said he was backing the protest as both a resident and councillor.

He said: “As a resident I worry about the effects of Brexit and in particular a No Deal Brexit.

“I support the idea of having a final say with a People’s Vote.

“Things have changed since the start of the Brexit process and now we know a lot more.

“As a council we have to prepare for what could happened with no deal.

“We could see our investments lose money and it could put more strain on our services.”

He added: “Something like this encourages people to engage because Brexit is something which will affect food prices, holidays abroad and businesses."

After leaving Colchester, the bus ended its UK tour at Westminster.
