A campaign to return Britain to the EU block has gained momentum exceeding the targeted signatures by over three million.

This is after a Thursday’s referendum that saw a 72% turnout of 17.4 million people, with 52% voting to leave the EU against 48% voting to remain.

The petition calls for the government to annul the vote if the remain or leave vote was less than 60% from a turnout of less than 75%.

In Britain the when petitions reach over 100,000 signatures, the government must subject it to debate in parliament.

Meanwhile, senior Labour MPs have also called for action to prevent a Brexit from the EU.

Tottenham MP David Lammy said: “Wake up. We do not have to do this. We can stop this madness and bring this nightmare to an end through a vote in parliament. Our sovereign parliament needs to now vote on whether we should exit the EU.

“The referendum was an advisory, non-binding referendum. Parliament now needs to decide whether we should go forward with Brexit and there should be a vote in parliament next week.”
