UK flag comes down in Brussels on Brexit day

The red, white and blue flag was lowered - with some difficulty - by officials outside the European Parliament, whose 73 British lawmakers will no longer be members of the assembly after Friday.

In its place on the pole they raised the EU flag, a circle of 12 yellow stars on a blue background.

Britain will become the first country to quit the European Union after 47 years in the club.
