A video posted to Twitter by the creative campaign group shows a tractor putting the finishing touches to the words, before the camera moves out and reveals the full message.

To the sounds of the classically English Nimrod by Edward Elgar, the picture reveals a sweeping view of the countryside, which will be visible to anyone passing overhead in an aeroplane.

The video adds: "A YouGov analysis of 300 polls shows a majority of Britons would now vote to stay in the European Union.

The YouGov 'poll of polls' showed that only one opinion poll since November 2017 had turned out for Leave, with all others showing a Remain preference.

"The will of the people has changed," said Led By Donkeys in the tweet.

It is the latest in a long line of stunts by the group, who earlier had projected a speech by Boris Johnson onto the side of the Houses of Parliament.
