The Liberal Democrats have gained 1000 new members since Theresa May announced a snap General Election, including several here in West Norfolk

In the first hour following the announcement the party saw a surge in membership as people flocked to support the party and change the direction of the country away from the Conservatives' disastrous hard Brexit.

Membership of the party has boomed and the number of members is the highest of this Century.

President of the Liberal Democrats, Sal Brinton, said:

"This is a time when liberals must stand together, and people across the country are doing just that.

"The surge in our membership proves that the Liberal Democrats are seen as the real opposition to this Conservative Brexit Government.

"While Theresa May is seeking to divide the country, the Liberal Democrats are the only party fighting to keep Britain Open, Tolerant and United."
