Supporters of Brexit gathered in Parliament Square in London to celebrate the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union on Friday.
The event, organised by the anti-European campaign group Leave means Leave, attracted big crowds of people waving Union Jack flags and chanting pro-Brexit slogans. They were met by a small number of counter-protesters.
The UK joined the European Economic... Еще Community in 1973 and after 47 years it is the first member state to withdraw from the EU. The 11-month transition period will begin on Friday at 23:00 GMT.
