Young people protest against Brexit at Senedd

More than 100 young people have marched from Cardiff city centre to the Senedd in protest against the result of the referendum on the UK's membership of the European Union.

On Thursday 17,410,742 people across the UK voted to leave the European Union, with only five Welsh local authorities voting in favour of remaining. But opinion polls suggest the majority of young people voted to remain in the EU.

On Monday many young people went to the Senedd to protest, not only against the result, but also against the fact that under-18s were not able to vote.

In the Scottish Independence Referendum in 2014, 16 year olds were given the vote.
