How will you  vote in the EU Referendum on June 23?

There was standing room only at Newbury Town Hall as Liberal Democrat MEP Catherine Bearder and entrepreneur Dinesh Dhamija took questions ahead of the looming EU referendum.

At the event, on Saturday, questions on a wide range of EU topics were asked, from peace and prosperity to employment in West Berkshire.

Chairwoman of the meeting Judith Bunting said: “The terrific turnout... shows how people in Newbury and West Berkshire crave proper information about Europe and why Britain’s membership is so important for our area.”

MEP for the South East since 2009, Mrs Bearder said: “What is at stake is our claim to leadership in Europe and for a better world. Have no doubt that being in Europe is good for our country and good for our local area.”
