They go on to say: "We believe you could also make clear that your preferred outcome is a free trade deal between Britain and the European Union, an arrangement that is to the mutual benefit of both parties".

"They want this Government to fulfil the mandate of the people and deliver a full British Brexit".

In an editorial in the Sun tabloid this weekend, Britain's foreign secretary Boris Johnson warned May that those who voted for Brexit "don't want some bog-roll Brexit - soft, yielding and seemingly infinitely long" he said, deploying British slang for toilet paper.

A smaller counter-march by Brexit supporters was also held in London.

A UK Independence Party (UKIP) pro-Brexit billboard sits in traffic as it is driven around the Westminster area of central London on June 22, 2018.

Organisers said at least 100,000 people attended, but police have not provided an official estimate.

The protest is part of a "summer of action" by campaign groups created to increase pressure on Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn.

James McGrory, one of the organizers, said voters were "made all kinds of promises" during the Brexit referendum.

Former Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg said: "There's a growing momentum saying, "after two years, that's long enough to have given the Brexiteers their chance, let's now make sure that the people have their say, that there's a people's vote when a final deal is struck".

"Brexit is bad not only because we want to keep things like it is, but because it is important to be within, in order to make changes".

"Work is going on all these things for both the negotiated outcome and if something goes wrong", Mr Davis said.

Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Cable, Green co-leader Caroline Lucas, Labour former NEC member and actor Tony Robinson and pro-EU campaigner Gina Miller were among those who joined the crowd in the capital on the second anniversary of the European Union vote.

Sir Vince is expected to say Brexit is not a "done deal" or inevitable and can be stopped.

Theresa May is facing pressure from all corners after pro-Brexit and pro-EU business leaders wrote to her each urging progress in their separate visions for a trade deal. A paper setting out the U.K. government position on future relations, due to be published this month, has been delayed until July because the Cabinet can not agree on a united stance.

"We believe you could also make clear that your preferred outcome is a free trade deal between Britain and the European Union, an arrangement that is to the mutual benefit of both parties", the letter says.

Their comments in interviews to mark two years since the British people voted to leave the European Union were made before Airbus warned it could be forced to pull out of the United Kingdom if there was a "no deal" Brexit.
