Anti-Brexit campaigners were out in force in Hastings town centre today (Friday, December 14).

Members of the European Movement 1066 branch took part in a national pro-Remain campaign at the rally beside the Odeon Cinema.

Scores of shoppers stopped to watch the event, which included light-hearted comedy from Faux Bo Jo, a stand-up comedian portraying former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and prominent Leave campaigner.

Protestors greeted a big yellow campaign bus and waved European Union flags.

However the name of the campaign bus attracted some vocal opposition from a few members of the public.

The campaigners are calling for a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal.
