After a conference dominated by the growing political crisis over Brexit, Plaid Cymru activists joined a cross-party protest against Brexit.

The demonstration in Bangor heard calls for a 'people's vote' referendum on whether to leave the European Union after all.

It comes as a reported one million people marched in London demanding a second Brexit vote, and an online petition calling for Brexit to be cancelled approached 5 million signatures.

Earlier, Plaid Cymru’s Westminster leader, Liz Saville Roberts told ITV Wales news that the UK government is trying to reach out to other parties to find a way out of the Brexit deadlock.

She said that Theresa May's deputy, David Lidington, had spoken to her on Friday about her party's attitude to so-called 'indicative votes', to see if there was a policy that a majority of MPs would support.

But Ms Saville Roberts doubted that the Prime Minister could stay in office much longer.

From where I stand now - but don't hold me to it - it certainly appears that the PM's position is very, very vulnerable, to the point where there are cleverer people than me who reckon she won't be holding the reins by the end of the week.

– Liz Saville Roberts, Plaid Cymru Westminster Leader
