Keith was joined on the march by wife Heather.

He said: Around 50 people from Hastings attended the Peoples Vote march in London last Saturday. Travel was difficult because of replacement buses on the rail service and it meant that many didn’t manage to meet up in the over one million people demonstration.

“The Hastings banners drew a lot of compliments and attention.

“The demonstration was good natured and polite and there was no trouble and no arrests.”

Keith added: “The People are speaking but is anybody listening?”
