CAMPAIGN group 38 Degrees brought roaming billboards to Swindon to highlight the potential impact of a no-deal Brexit on local jobs.

Hundreds of posters were put up in the town over the weekend and thousands of leaflets pushed through letterboxes while two mobile hoardings toured the centre to convey the message.

The manufacturing sector is projected to be one of the biggest hit industries if the UK leaves the EU without a deal due to the potential impact on supply chains, tariffs and regulations.

According to the Office for National Statistics, manufacturing jobs accounted for 17.4 per cent of jobs in Swindon in 2017.

Ellie Gellard, campaigns director at 38 Degrees, said: “No-one voted for this.

“There’s a real risk that whoever gets handed the keys to Number 10 opts to take Britain out of the EU without a deal.

“With so much at stake for Swindon, it’s vital that voters’ concerns are heard.

In response to the message, North Swindon MP Justin Tomlinson, told the Adver: “Robert and I continue to work with businesses of all sizes to shape a Brexit that delivers appropriate transitional arrangements to allow us to continue to be the number one destination for foreign investment and to deliver record employment in all regions of the UK."
