Brexit Day: How Grimsby people feel about leaving the EU

The UK will leave the EU today

People in Grimsby said leaving the European Union will be worth it on Brexit Day.

The UK will leave the EU at 11pm on January 31, 2020, and enter an 11 month transition period where political leaders will thrash out a deal on a future arrangement.

Back in June 2016, North East Lincolnshire backed Brexit and voted 69.9% to leave the union.
