Burnham-On-Sea's MEP says Brexit is a "shattering decision"

Burnham-On-Sea's Member of the European Parliament (MEP) Julie Girling has spoken of her shock and disappointment at the result of the EU referendum.

The Conservative MEP, who campaigned to remain, said: "This is a shattering decision for Britain."

"I am deeply sorry that the people of the UK have chosen this leap in the dark. I believe future generations will question our wisdom."

"The EU has many faults, of course, but I remain convinced that we would be safer, stronger and better off by remaining a member."

"However, the British people have decided otherwise. The Conservative Party, like the whole nation, must put our disagreements behind us and pull together to get the best for Britain."

"As an MEP, I intend to do all I can to make sure we negotiate the best terms possible for our departure and protect our trade, exports and economy."
