Retailers across the country gathered at Westminster today to rally their MPs on the latest legislation movement on plain packaging.

The announcement that the latest tobacco legislation vote will take place before the next general election was announced in late January by the Conservative public health minister, Jane Ellison. Many retail industry representatives have already voiced their outrage via official announcements and Twitter, but now the NFRN have asked retailers to join their rally at Westminster today in a bid to prevent plain packaging from becoming an official Act.

Here's how the day unfolded. Post-analysis and reactions coming soon.
