TONIGHT marks the UK’s official departure from the European Union but no bells in Sussex will chime to mark the occasion.

Many Brexiteers have demanded their councils celebrate Brexit by sounding their town hall’s bells at 11pm.

Bolton Council in Greater Manchester has confirmed it will “bong for Brexit”.

But there will be no such celebrations in Sussex, councils confirmed.

Brighton and Hove City Council’s Brexit communications officer said there were “no plans to ‘bong for Brexit’.”

Meanwhile, a spokeswoman for Adur and Worthing Councils said: “No, there are no plans to do anything.

“Our town hall clock chimes on the hour anyway.”

Arun District Council, Horsham District Council, Lewes District Council, and Eastbourne Borough Council all confirmed they would no “bong for Brexit”.

Mid Sussex District Council did not respond for comment when asked if they would celebrate the UK’s departure.

The news comes after a campaign to make Big Ben “bong for Brexit” admitted defeat despite raising £272,770.

Conservative MP Mark Francois, who organised the campaign, attempted to raise £500,000 from supporters to pay for special measures to ring the bell.

The money raised was instead donated to war veteran charity for Help for Heroes.
