Around 40 people gathered along with their pro-Brexit campaign bus to sing and chant.

As reported earlier, Brexit figurehead Nigel Farage was unable to join this leg of the march due to his commitments as an MEP. He is currently in Strasbourg.

However, the marchers did include another leading Brexit supporter – Tim Martin, the founder and chairman of pub chain Wetherspoons.

Tomorrow the march moves on to Aylesbury.

In total they are marching approximately 270 miles. They set out from Sunderland on 16 March and finish in Parliament Square in London on 29 March, the original date for the UK to leave the EU, which has now been delayed until at least 12 April.
