A public conference is being held in Cambridge today to discuss the city's future post-Brexit.

It comes ahead of the start of negotiations for the UK's exit from the EU.

The open event is being held at the Guildhall between 1pm and 8pm, but requires prior registration.

Those attending will include representatives from the local business community, Universities, the public sector and community groups.

The aim is to move beyond the 'Remain or Leave' question and start a new conversation on 'where do we go from here?

"As the Cambridge University European Society, we seek to reflect Cambridge's diversity and to be welcoming and inclusive. Working with our partners, we aim for this conference to bridge the different communities and perspectives across Cambridge and offer an opportunity to come together to discuss our post-Brexit future. What issues are most important for the people of Cambridge and what would you like the government to prioritise during the negotiations? We look forward to examining these questions at our conference!"

– Matteo Mirolo, Cambridge University European Society

His family has now met the Justice Secretary and Norfolk MP Liz Truss after an inquest last month found serious failings with his care at the prison.
