A Pro-EU advocate from Harpenden has appeared on a Channel 4 News documentary to talk about Brexit.

Filmmaker Grace Harper spoke to Carol Hedges about her role campaigning to Remain in the European Union.

On the six-minute episode, entitled Meet the Pro and Anti-Brexit Social Media Warriors, Carol revealed that she has Tweeted 316,000 times.

The author described Brexit as "very consuming": "I will be able to hold my head up and say, I fought it.

The show also featured two Brexiteers and one other Remain campaigner.
