Farmers who are campaigning for another vote on Brexit have herded sheep past government buildings in London to symbolise potential effects of a no-deal Brexit on farms.

The anti-Brexit campaigners herded a flock of sheep along Whitehall on Thursday (15 August) in protest.

Six sheep were led by the protesters on the same day as the launch of the 'Farmers For A People’s Vote' group.

They say a no-deal could have a 'devastating impact' on British farmers and the wider agricultural sector.



The protest lasted around half an hour and stopped outside The Farmers’ Club at 3 Whitehall Court.



Dr Sean Rickard, former chief economist of the NFU, unveiled the report 'No Deal: The Door To The Decimation Of UK Farming' on Wednesday night (14 August).

He highlighted how the farming and food industries would be “most vulnerable” to the impacts of the UK exiting the EU with no-deal.

“We are in a state of utter trading madness if we crash out of Europe,” he said.
