HUNDREDS of people turned out in Malvern on Thursday evening with just 24 hours notice to protest against Boris Johnson proroguing Parliament.

And another march is planned for Worcester tomorrow.

The event was organised by Malvern Hills District Labour councillor Samantha Charles, who described it as a March For Democracy.

She said: "“Whether we voted Leave or Remain, whether we are members of a political party or not, this is not what we voted for.

"At this time of national crisis MPs should be working night and day to mitigate against the harm crashing out without a deal will do, not been kept away from Parliament for five weeks.

"Extremely important legislation due to be heard, such as the Domestic Abuse Bill, will now not be passed.

"MPs now need to be allowed to work together for the good of the many, not the few. Anything less is an affront to democracy.”

A further demonstration is due to take place at Cathedral Plaza in Worcester tomorrow (Saturday) at noon.
