BRITISH expatriates living in Spain have shared their fears and concerns in the run up to Brexit with millions of BBC television viewers.

BBC Breakfast TV has been in Spain to talk to members of the expat community and report the very real problems that thousands of people could face after Brexit.

Anne Hernandez, of the non-political group Brexpats in Spain was one of the people interviewed in a series of interviews.

Speaking to the Euro Weekly News after the filming she said: “It is important that people in the UK know about what is going on in Spain. But the problem is it is probably too little too late.

“It is nice to give our point of view, but I really think that Boris (Johnson) has been taking us for fools.”

She added: “Really this attention, and asking these sort of questions, and the debate about health care, letting us move back to the UK with EU spouses, and pensions should have happened before the vote.”

Featured in the video were several expats who were damning about the state of play when it comes to Brexit. These included Dave England and Lisa Burgess who outlined their worries, although Neil Hesketh of Support in Spain was more confident of a reasonable outcome to Brexit.

He said no government would abandon people without their rights to such things as healthcare and workers rights. He pointed out that before Spain joined the EU Britain and Spain had lots of agreements covering these areas.
