Two 51-seater coaches will be departing Norwich on Saturday to join the March for Europe, which is set to take place on the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome.

The coaches have been organised by the Norwich and Norfolk Stays movement on Facebook, which is ascribed to by around 1,600 people since the referendum last June.

Ahead of the march tomorrow, the group said: 'Despite the tragic events of Wednesday in Parliament Square, Unite for Europe and its supporters felt strongly that it was important to proceed with the march, to demonstrate publicly that the British people are no cowed by terrorist acts. 'People are travelling to the UK from all over Europe specifically to take part in the march.

The March for Europe says its objective is to 'call on the heads of state and government meeting in Rome to approve a roadmap to relaunch and complete Europe's economic and political unity.'
