Campaigners urging the Government to give the British public the final say on any Brexit deal were in Portishead at the weekend.

Members of North Somerset Open Britain were in High Street on Saturday.

They spoke to people about their project to gather support to persuade the Government to allow a People’s Vote to determine whether any deal to leave the EU is acceptable.

Campaigner Andrew Wright said: “As time ticks away, people on both sides of the Brexit debate are nervous.

“The absolute shambles in parliament over Brexit is isn’t fair on the British people as we can’t plan for the future.

“One Portishead passer-by we spoke to has a freight business running into the EU and he doesn’t know what will be happening after Brexit day on March 29 2019.

“It is time to take back the decision from politicians in a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal.”
