MANCHESTER, England (Reuters) - Britain's junior Brexit minister Steve Baker said on Monday the country's decision to leave the European Union will not be reversed and those hoping otherwise need to accept the decision.

Thousands of demonstrators marched to the site of the ruling Conservative Party conference on Sunday to demand that Britain stay in the European Union and embrace closer ties with its neighbours.

"I think people should accept that we are leaving," Baker told an event at the conference in the northern English city of Manchester.
