Post-referendum rally in support of refugees

Protesters at a previous rally in Bristol Credit: Stand up to Racism Bristol

More than 200 people are due to attend a rally in Bristol City Centre in protest at the EU Referendum result.

Bristol might have voted in favour of remaining in the EU, but overall the country decided to leave.

One of the key issues of the campaigns on both sides was immigration.

Today's rally has been organised by three groups: Stand Up to Racism Bristol, Bristol People's Assembly and Bristol Stop the War Coalition and is aimed at giving the message, "Refugees are welcome here".

It will take place at the Fountains at 5pm tonight, 24 June.

'We need to stay calm, business is used to dealing with change'

We've spoken to Mark Dampier, a finance expert at Hargreaves Lansdown.

He's full of reassurance - saying we should not be worried about the impact of the Referendum result.

Financial markets have taken a big hit, made worse as they were priced for a Remain win, however as I write we have seen some recovery.

The FTSE 100 is actually higher than it was last week, to give some perspective.

In some respects nothing changes yet as Article 50 needs to be invoked to start the two year countdown - but this seems unlikely to happen until Cameron leaves in October.

Much negotiations to go on, but we are in a global world, there are plenty of other problems to worry about!

We need to stay calm, business is used to dealing with change, unless you think this is the end of capitalism, crisis bring opportunity and those with cash should start putting it to use over the next few days.
