The Sun newspaper uses the White Cliffs of Dover signal the start of the Brexit process

The White Cliffs of Dover came back into the national eye today when a newspaper used them to signal the start of Brexit.

This is the image projected by The Sun for its edition this morning, which had local people talking.

The national newspaper put it out to signal today's delivery of Britain's letter to the EU triggering Article 50, the process for leaving the European Union.

The image, projected just below the village of St Margaret's-at-Cliffe, caught the attention of Dovorians who discussed it on social media.

The projection had first gone public last night and local man David Wright quipped on Facebook: "We be on the front page of The Sun tomorrow."

Dave Williams replied: "Always on the front line since 7 AD."

The stunt was a direct message to people on the Continent.

Dover's White Cliffs can be seen by the naked eye from the equivalent French cliffs, Cap Blanc Nez, just west of Calais.
