A DEMONSTRATION calling on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to “Stop the Coup” and calling on MPs to "defend our democracy" was staged outside Llandrindod Wells Post Office on Saturday morning.

The protesters were also calling for votes for MPs on the issue.

Hundreds of people across Wales have been protesting Prime Minister Boris Johnson's decision to suspend Parliament in the lead-up to Brexit.

Protests have taken place in several towns and cities in Wales.

The decision to "prorogue" Parliament prompted an angry backlash from MPs and opponents of a "no-deal" Brexit.

The Counsel General for Wales has announced he is supporting a legal challenge against the decision.

Hundreds also marched in Aberystwyth, while several dozen people in Cardiff protested outside the Principality Stadium ahead of the Wales v Ireland rugby match.

Protests were also organised in Bangor, Colwyn Bay, Haverfordwest, Llandrindod Wells, Swansea and Usk.

The Prime Minister has dismissed suggestions that suspending Parliament is motivated by a desire to force through a no deal, calling them "completely untrue".

Glyn Davies, Conservative MP for Montgomeryshire, has backed Ruth Davidson MSP’s plea to MPs to “get behind a deal” before October 31.
