A field in Wiltshire is now home to what is believed to be the biggest-ever Brexit protest.

The words ‘Britain Now Wants To Remain’ were ploughed into the field by a tractor.

The stunt was orchestrated by anti-Brexit campaign group Led By Donkeys to coincide with the build-up to this weekend’s People’s Vote march in London.

David Lewis, who runs the farm where the message was ploughed, said it gave him “real pride”.

Brexit would be just awful for farming. So many farmers voted Leave but have since realised they were had. It gives me real pride to see this huge message ploughed out in our field. I hope the people in London get to see it. This country has changed its mind.

– David Lewis

Led By Donkeys was launched in January this year by four founding members, who wished to highlight promises made by Leave politicians ahead of the referendum in 2016.
