Organisers say at least 670,000 have turned out for what they hope will prove to be the most important anti-Brexit demonstration since the referendum

Addressing the crowds at Parliament Square earlier, Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable, said it was “a tragedy this country is being divided by generation”.

He said it was the “majority” of his generation that voted to leave, “taking the freedom” away from young voters. “There is no deal better than the one we have now: it is better for Britain and better for Europe,” he said to cheers.

Here’s the best banners from today – from a half-shredded Vote Leave placard in an oversized frame, to Brexit shooting you in the foot, to ‘What a load of Brexcement!’

The Observer journalist Carole Cadwalladr, whose series of stories caused Facebook’s share value to tumble and Cambridge Analytica to fold, is being trumpeted as a future prime minister.

Stranger things have happened ...

The Green party MP Caroline Lucas described the huge crowd as a beautiful sight.

What a movement we have become. The Green party is proud to be part of this amazing movement for a people’s vote, because we know that democracy didn’t end on the 23 June 2016. That referendum wasn’t the end of the story. It was the start of something new.

[Brexit] would make our poorest communities even poorer and more powerless. We must have that people’s vote, but we must also re-programme an economy that fails so many, that is based on such inequality, that condemns us to climate breakdown.

Another roundup of photos from today, as speeches conclude.

More protesters have told our reporter about their fears of a no-deal Brexit and the potential effect it could have on peace in Ireland, the economy, and LGBT rights.

It appears that Rachel Johnson, sister of the former foreign secretary, attended the march in London today.

Elsewhere, in Harrogate, at the Leave Means Leave rally there are reportedly 1,200 people in attendance.

Sky have reported that Nigel Farage claimed “millions” of people were streaming the pro-Brexit events; however, on Twitter, 190 people are watching the Harrogate event, while there are 12,000 views on its Facebook stream.


The tail of the protest has now moved on to Piccadilly, far later than planned, indicating the scale of the turnout today.

Finally turned the corner. The #PeoplesVoteMarch is frikin' enormous!

Trying to give you a sense of scale of this march. They’ve been marching since 12 and these people still circa ? mile from destination in Parliament Square. It’s a big thing. #peoplesvotemarch

The Metropolitan police have said today’s march has passed without incident, in spite of the sheer size of the demonstration. A spokesperson said they were not aware of any arrests and there had been no criminal disruption.

BREAKING: crowd size estimates have been revised up from 570,000 to 670,000 - 670,000 people demanding a #PeoplesVote on the Brexit deal. Please RT:

MPs have also tweeted their support for a people’s vote.

We demand a #PeoplesVote !

Absolutely fantastic to see such huge numbers at the People’s Vote March. The rally in Parliament Square starting shortly!

Remarkable turnout. Well done all involved in @peoplesvote_uk and all MPs, from all parties, who came together to do what is right for the country.

Sadiq Khan is now addressing the crowds at Parliament Square. Ahead of his platform performance he said today would become a historic moment, adding that no one had voted to “make life harder for our children and grandchildren”.

Today will go down as an historic moment in our democracy. A moment when in their thousands, people from every corner of our country and every section of our society will take to the streets – coming to make our voice heard.

The #PeoplesVote rally in Parliament is underway - we demand a #PeoplesVote on the Brexit deal:

The lies, the mistruths and the deceptions of the referendum campaign have now been exposed, and it’s clear the will of the people is changing. No one voted to leave the EU to make themselves poorer. No one voted to make life harder for our children and grandchildren. No one voted to see our NHS damaged. And no one voted for the shambles that this government has created.

The actor Andy Serkis, who starred in Lord of the Rings, is on the march with his wife, Lorraine Ashbourne, and 14-year-old son Louis.

He believes there should be a second referendum “now that people are more informed” and that “the will of the people doesn’t have to stand still, it’s not an immovable thing that is fixed.”

Diana Luck, from Muswell Hill, is one of many women on the march carrying various homemade ‘angry granny’ signs. Her’s simply reads “Very Angry Grandmother”.

“I am very angry at the things that are happening like Brexit and Trump and very worried about the future for my children and grandchildren,” she said. “I think that’s true for all of us angry grannies.”

She added she was marching because democracy was being eroded and the things she believes in, like the NHS, were being threatened.

A brief reminder on what may have compelled people to take to the streets in droves today.

Here’s why I’m going on the march for a #PeoplesVote.

Nicola Sturgeon, the first minister of Scotland, has sent a surprise video message of support to the rally promising that the SNP’s 35 MPs would give their unconditional backing for a people’s vote.

Let me say this loudly and clearly, if the issue comes before the House of Commons, SNP MPs will support a people’s vote which includes the option to remain in the EU. The leave campaign has already gone down in history as one of most disingenuous, dishonourable and downright dishonest electoral contests of modern times. Those responsible should be utterly ashamed of themselves.

Instead of a coherent vision and clear prospectus setting out what a vote to leave the EU would mean, all we got was waffle and that infamous lie on the side of a bus. Incredible though it may seem, things since then have got even worse.

The Tory government’s handling of these negotiations has been chaotic, incompetent and shambolic. Having spent two years telling us that no deal was better than a bad deal, the prime minister is now preparing to pile pressure on MPs to vote for a bad or blindfold deal on the grounds that ‘no deal’ would be catastrophic. She is trying to scare the UK into the frying pan out of fear of the fire. It is a scandal and it should not be accepted.

There are still thousands of people at Hyde Park corner stuck in a jam before they are expected to make their way down Piccadilly.

It appears that the police dramatically under-estimated the number of marchers, but they are being kept happy with various chants and a sound system blaring out Kraftwerk’s TransEurop Express.

The march is finally moving, but progressing incredibly slowly. It’s frequently stopping and starting. The roads are rammed with protesters, many of whom are happily dancing along to the samba band.

Protesters have brought traffic to a standstill in central London as the march proves far more popular than initially expected.

Organisers are saying more than 500,000 are on the #PeoplesVoteMarch
It's the biggest march for more than a decade! And that's without official support from the Opposition! This is grass roots British democracy at its best!

More photos from the march:

Organisers are heralding the largest Brexit demonstration yet as 570,000 people come together for the People’s Vote march.

The campaign has stewards stationed at regular intervals to estimate the size of the vast crowd that backed up Park Lane and spilled into Hyde Park before setting off toward Piccadilly and a mass rally in Parliament Square.

INCREDIBLE shots of the packed streets of London, full of campaigners demanding a #PeoplesVote at the #PeoplesVoteMarch. Please RT:

Activist Adam Bradford, one of the leading voices in the young People’s Vote and founder of group Brexit by Under 30s, says we face a bleak future and young voices need amplifying.

Young voices need amplifying in the Brexit debate and the misconceptions around what a People’s Vote really means need to be unravelled. I feel like the government does not constitutionally have the mandate to change the country in this way overnight, I am feeling vulnerable as an employer of EU citizens and now the government is turning inwards we are facing a bleak future.

We have this rhetoric coming from Downing Street which keeps saying it is delivering on the “will of the people” and we are in a situation where the government is trying to force through a deal that is being held up like this is something we voted to do. But people actually voted whether to leave or remain in the EU. We didn’t vote for this Segway into a hard Brexit with the outcome unknown.

The government does not have the mandate to fundamentally change the country overnight. Before we actually had the vote, we should have been better informed and we should have been immediately aware of what leaving would mean.

The government is closed off to what people are saying, it is turning its back on our concerns and turning inwards. We are not Brexiteers and we are not “remoaners”. We just want to know how we will be supported. The government is playing politics with the next generation’s future.

On the march, Elena Remigi, founder of the In Limbo project, has spoken of the “turmoil” EU citizens in Britain and Brits residing in the EU have been in since the Brexit vote.

This is rather good.

Best placard yet! #PeoplesVoteMarch

The actor and seasoned campaigner Hugh Grant has tweeted his regret that he could not attend today’s march.

Very sorry not to be in UK for #PeoplesVoteMarch. Will march by myself alone around French village chanting.

It’s alright, Britain! The metropolitan elite have arrived.#peoplesvotemarch #peoplesvote #luvvies @mrchrisaddison @Aiannucci

The Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, who campaigned for remain but was part of the anti-EU Bennite faction of the party before his rapid rise, is also absent from today’s march:

Twenty years ago I was proud to join the campaign to extradite Pinochet for his crimes against the people of Chile.

Today I am in Geneva meeting Michelle Bachelet who was imprisoned and tortured by Pinochet's regime. She later became the first woman President of Chile.

Four packed coaches set off at 9am from Birmingham, which voted marginally in favour of Brexit in 2016, to carry people to the march in London.

At 12.30pm they arrived on Park Lane and the passengers, kitted out with EU flags, T-shirts, banners, badges and whistles, immediately swarmed towards the crowd as it inched eastwards towards Westminster.

Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, will address the crowd later today.

As Mayor, I look out for Londoners. And we need a public vote on Brexit. #peoplesvote #peoplesvotemarch

London Mayor Sadiq Khan says "politicians can't be trusted to make the right decision" and calls for the British public to have the final say on the Brexit deal

Read more on the #PeoplesVote march taking place in London today here:

Campaigners are being led to Parliament Square by a group of young voters behind a People’s Vote banner.

Emma Stevens and Emily Longman are two of the students leading the march and are among the hundreds of thousands of young people who were denied a vote in the referendum but must now live with the consequences.

While anti-Brexit protesters gathered for the People’s Vote march, Theresa May visited an art exhibition in her constituency of Maidenhead.

Titled Maidenhead and Me, the exhibition featured work by locals with different perspectives of the town.

Marching under an “Islanders for Europe” sign, Glenn Kobanny said he had travelled from the Isle of Wight this morning to be part of the protest.

The 52-year-old, originally from the island, said: “It’s just a load of nonsense, it was a bunch of lies to begin with.

Meanwhile, ahead of a Leave means Leave rally in Harrogate, Nigel Farage has told Sky that he would be happy to have a second referendum.

Nigel Farage says he would be happy to have a second referendum "in twenty years or so", but claims leave would win a #PeoplesVote by a greater margin

Read more on the Brexit marches taking part across the UK today:

Campaigners also hope to unleash a tide of postal protest aimed at MPs by issuing 100,000 postcards emblazoned with the words “Brexit has already become a dog’s dinner – the whole process is going badly wrong. And it’s only going to get worse.”

A spokesman for The People’s Vote said it was time to tell politicians they will not be forgiven “if they allow a bad deal to be rammed through parliament” or “blindfold the public about the long-term cost of Brexit”.

Jo Steele, who works at St Michael’s and All Saints charity, estimates that
more than 250 people have come down from Oxford to join the march.
“We support the EU, we want to remain in the EU, and we are marching for democracy,” she said. “We need a further referendum on the final deal with the option to remain.”

Demonstrators are now marching along the eastern edge of Hyde Park.

They are expected to turn on to Piccadilly, before proceeding along St James Street and Pall Mall to get to Trafalgar Square.

The Labour MP David Lammy, one of the most vocal proponents of a second vote, has urged people not to accept the idea that it is impossible to stop Brexit.

Today thousands will gather for #PeoplesVoteMarch.

Do not let them tell you it goes against democracy to ask for more democracy.

Do not let them tell you the choice is between no deal and a bad deal.

Do not let them tell you it is not possible to stop Brexit. We can do it.

What have you got against working with our European partners to prevent global corporate tax avoidance, @Jacob_Rees_Mogg? Oh wait.

Around 400 protesters made up of British expatriates living in Europe, some of whom travelled from Italy and France, and EU citizens residing in the UK have gathered in Hyde Park to call for the right to vote in a final referendum.

The group have united under the umbrella group the Five Million, which refers to the number of EU citizens in Britain and UK citizens residing in the EU.

Thousands of people from across the country have converged on the capital to demand a final say on the terms of the Brexit deal.

The People’s Vote March is due to set off from Park Lane at midday and will end in a rally in Parliament Square.

I'm marching today for a #PeoplesVote on #Brexit deal. Join us! Take back control. Let the people decide! Thanks to EU we have clean beaches, no roaming charges, visa-free travel in 27 countries, consumer protection Via @peoplesvote_uk

Huddersfield v Liverpool: Premier League – live!

Huddersfield Town: Lossl, Jorgensen, Schindler, Lowe, Hadergjonaj, Mooy, Hogg, Billing, Durm, Pritchard, Depoitre.
Subs: Bacuna, Diakhaby, Hamer, van La Parra, Mbenza, Mounie, Stankovic.

Liverpool: Alisson, Gomez, Lovren, van Dijk, Robertson, Lallana, Henderson, Milner, Salah, Sturridge, Shaqiri.
Subs: Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Firmino, Mignolet, Origi, Matip, Alexander-Arnold.

You could argue that the international break came at the wrong time for Huddersfield Town. A fortnight ago, David Wagner’s troops drew at Burnley, and on the balance of play they should have registered their first win of the season. It was a “brave and confident” display, according to Wagner. Slim pickings, admittedly, but when you’re struggling at the wrong end of the table, you grab any positives going with both hands. However a chance to build some precious momentum was scuppered by the quirks of the calendar.

The break probably came at the right time for Liverpool. After opening the season with seven straight wins, they’ve not won in four, a run that’s seen them knocked out of the League Cup and pitched into a real dogfight in the Champions League. Given that winless streak comprised of games against Chelsea (twice), Napoli and Manchester City, and they’re still in the mix at the top of the Premier League, this hardly constitutes a full-blown crisis. But they’ve not been at their freewheeling best, so the opportunity to stop and take stock will have been welcomed by Jurgen Klopp.

Meet the UFC's only cutwoman: Swayze Valentine Female fighters in the world of mixed martial arts are nothing new. Make no mistake, it’s still a man's world but for one woman, that wasn't a reason to stay away. Swayze Valentine, the sport's first cutwoman, as opposed to cutman, now works at the highest level of mixed martial arts – the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Dana Jacobson reports. Sat, 20 Oct 2018 15:02:20 GMT Exeter’s Gareth Steenson on form but 14-man Castres still too strong

• Pool Two: Castres 29-25 Exeter
• Exeter Chiefs again struggle in Champions Cup pool stage

Exeter have never won more than three matches in the Champions Cup pool stage. They will need to win in Munster in January if they are to improve that record, and make the knockout stage, after failing to exploit the dismissal of the Castres No 8 Maama Vaipulu on 36 minutes for a head-high challenge.

Vaipulu hit Luke Cowan-Dickie’s jaw with his left shoulder as the Exeter hooker made a supporting run without the ball and became the latest victim in the crackdown on challenges that make contact with an opponent’s head. Cowan-Dickie did not appear for the second half and Castres got away with three other high challenges.

Look on the bright side: inside a psychedelic Margate home

Cartoon colours clash with animal prints in this flamboyant house inspired by Del Boy and Changing Rooms

The exterior of Amy Exton’s Margate home is painted an innocuous shade of cream. From the outside, there’s no hint of what’s to come. But entering Exton’s house is like stepping into a psychedelic screensaver. Acidic yellows, pinks, blues and purples coat the floors, walls, stairs and ceilings. The effect is disorientating: 3D shapes are rendered 2D and, as the light changes, new colours emerge from every surface. Once your eyes have adjusted to the onslaught, you can start to take in the details: the cherubic lamp stands, porcelain leopards, kitsch side tables and plinths – the kind of objects that remain unsold at car boot sales. “How did this happen?” I ask.

“I don’t come from an interior design background,” says Exton, who studied fine art at Central Saint Martins. “I haven’t got all these rules to follow. I’m just kind of doing what I think looks good.” She cites Only Fools and Horses and the 1990s TV series Changing Rooms as the inspiration behind her “trashy aesthetic”. “Most things that I like would look terrible in most interiors, but the whole grey trend just isn’t for me.”

Business titans fight shy of Saudi’s trillion-dollar charm offensive Riyadh is investing widely to wean itself off oil: but the dark allegations about the fate of dissident Jamal Khashoggi put its ambitious economic plan in peril

When Mohammed bin Salman was touring the UK and US earlier this year, the crown prince of Saudi Arabia – and its de facto ruler – could have relied almost exclusively on businesses backed by the kingdom’s money.

Landing in London, “MBS” might have dispensed with his chauffeur-driven car, travelling into the capital by Uber, while his aides finalised his itinerary on smartphones powered with chips designed by Cambridge-based ARM Holdings. After glad-handing bank chiefs in the City, any investment plans they discussed could have been further developed using cloud office app Slack.

How to make it big in tech and still keep the demons at bay In a testosterone-laden field, many leaders hide their anxieties to avoid looking weak ... but a new culture of openness is growing

At a mentoring session for founders of early-stage startups last year, Asi Sharabi broached a topic rarely discussed – at least frankly and in public – by the tech community: the daunting personal and psychological challenges faced by (often very young) entrepreneurs.

“The biggest challenge on a day-to-day basis is what I call managing your own psychology: the pressure, the anxiety and all the faces you have to put on,” he told a roomful of founders selected to be part of Tech Nation’s growth programme. “I realised there are a lot of balancing acts to being a founder, especially when we decided to play the venture [capital]-backed game.”
