North Devonians young and old joined a convoy of eight Devon coaches heading to London for the People’s Vote march.

The coach-load joined 700,000 people on Saturday who all believe another vote should be offered on Brexit.

Exmoor farmer Tortie Eveleigh said: “Our hill livestock farm near Lynton has been in my family for three generations, and the next generation is waiting to carry on.

“In our time we have battled through various crises, from foot and mouth to TB, but Brexit will make them seem like a walk in the park, especially if there is no deal with the EU.

“That is why I marched for a People’s Vote on Saturday: for our farm, our heritage and our country as well as the global environment, peace and unity.”

Devon for Europe chairman, Alex Pilkington, praised the numbers of supporters who had attended, and said: “People from across Devon made the effort to travel to the People’s Vote March for the Future, to ensure there was a strong Devon voice demanding that democracy is upheld.”
