Thousands of people marched in the heart of London on Saturday to protest against the outcome of last week’s referendum to leave the EU.

Demonstrators at the "March for Europe" rally, which was organised on social media, held placards saying "Bremain" and "We Love EU", according to the BBC.

Other placards carried statements such as “I love EU” and “We want Breturn”.

The demonstration was organised on social media by comedian Mark Thomas.

Thomas said: "We would accept the result of the referendum if it was fought on a level playing field. But it was full of misinformation and people need to do something with their frustration," according to SkyNews.

London voted 60% in favour of remaining in the EU in last Thursday's referendum, with younger voters widely in favour of staying in the bloc. However, 52of Britons overall cast ballots in favour of leaving.

Reuters quoted rally organiser Kieran MacDermott as saying: "We can prevent Brexit by refusing to accept the referendum as the final say and take our finger off the self-destruct button."

An estimated 30,000 people took part in the march, according to Press Association news agency.
