Protesters, most of them dressed in blue and yellow outfits and waved EU flags, urged the British government to immediately overturn the decision to leave the EU.

Liberal Democrat MP Ed Davey said his emotions had shifted from “anger to distress, from fury to despair” and then to embarrassment at the Brexit negotiations.

"Since the Brexit negotiations begun there's a third emotion I've been feeling – embarrassment,” Davey said.

"Embarrassment at our country's leaders. Embarrassment for Great Britain,” he added.

He also urged the protesters to be “a unifying source.”

A referendum held in June 2016 saw 52 percent of people voting to leave the EU after 44 years of membership.

Many protesters carried placards that read "Exit from Brexit."
