Pro-Brexit demonstrators donning yellow vests blocked Westminster Bridge this morning.

Protestors chanting ‘Brexit now’ stopped cars from crossing as Theresa May holds crunch talks with EU leaders in Brussels today.

About 60 people wearing yellow worker vests similar to those worn during protests in France this month gathered in the road.

One eyewitness claimed that the protest, in which some participants were seen holding up a British flag, had stopped an ambulance from crossing the bridge, but others reported that it had been allowed through.

The protestors were eventually moved on by police before they headed to Downing Street, where they chanted pro-Brexit songs before leaving.

The scenes were reminiscent of the gilet jaune movement in France, in which demonstrators donning yellow vests have brought Paris to a standstill on consecutive weekends this month over minimum wage and tax complaints.
