Prime Minister Theresa May has been urged to ‘come clean’ over her Brexit deal.

Weston and North Somerset Open Britain campaigned in the town’s High Street at the weekend as it seeks to encourage the Government to keep the country in the single market and customs union after Brexit.

Campaigner Andrew Wright thinks voters were not aware how complex leaving the European Union would be.

He said: “During this year it will begin to be very obvious where the government intends to take the country as we head towards Brexit.

“The Prime Minister will have to come clean with a British public that has become very frustrated with the process thus far.

“This came across very clearly from people in Weston regardless of the way they voted in the referendum.

“I think it is fair to say that many had not realised how complicated it was all going to be.”
