FLOOKBURGH, United Kingdom
The Wider Image: Tea, bingo and cockles - my journey to Brexit-on-Sea
Reuters photographer Clodagh Kilcoyne: The thing about an old rusty tractor, said cockle-picker Tony McClure, is that even in the sea air, it will start. His was parked out on the tidal flats of Flookburgh sands in Morecambe Bay in northwest England, braving the salty shallows of an unusually warm February dawn. He was comparing old mechanical tractors to the more modern electronic kind, and I was well aware of what he was talking about. The tide here comes in fast: If you're not careful, it can swamp a vehicle. So you want be certain to get off that seabed. McClure 39, was one of the first people I met on a February-March assignment around England's coastline, where I was photographing and talking to people who had voted to leave the European Union. Like most of the 50 or so people I met and spoke to while traveling from Morecambe to St. Agnes in Cornwall, McClure wants Britain to get out of the EU.
