However despite it becoming the most popular one ever submitted to the Parliament website, it has not amassed many signatures across our area. 

Since being started in late February by Margaret Anne Georgiadou it has become the most signed online petition overtaking the 4.1 million signatures amassed by a 2016 one calling for a second EU referendum.

The milestone comes the day after around a million people attended a march on Westminster calling for a People's Vote.
