Protesters have gathered in Tavistock to campaign against the decision to suspend Parliament.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson's move has been criticised by many who believe it is a way to avoid MPs trying to block the UK leaving the European Union without a deal on 31 October.

Campaigners have been outside Conservative MP Geoffrey Cox's constituency offices in Tavistock.

He is yet to comment on the protest.
