Members of Sheffield for Europe, chairman Neill Schofield, said campaigners were expected to gather outside Sheffield Town Hall at around 5.30pm on Tuesday.

Mr Schofield said: 'We want Sheffield MPs and those from other parts of South Yorkshire to vote in Parliament to reflect the views of increasing numbers of people in the region.

'None of us voted in the Referendum to make the country poorer, or give our young people fewer opportunities.'
