'Leave' campaigners gather in 'Remain' city

Campaigners are taking part in a rally in Exeter on Saturday lunchtime to call for a strong Brexit. Former reality TV contestant and controversial newspaper columist Katie Hopkins is amongst those joining the march jointly organised by UKIP,  Leave means Leave and a group called For Britain.


She's written on social media that they're "standing together as one team with the good people of the south west", but that she's concerned Exeter MP Ben Bradshaw - who's calling for a People's Vote - will get his hair wet in the rain.


Most constituencies in Devon voted for Leave in the referendum two years ago, although Exeter, where the March gets underway in the High Street in an hour's time, voted Remain.


Ms Hopkins also claims there's a "news blackout" on what she says is the UK signing away its sovereignty to the United Nations in a global migration compact.
