Since Britain voted to leave the European Union (EU) two years ago, the country’s three and a half million EU citizens have been uncertain of their future. As negotiations between London and Brussels become ever more protracted, the prospect of the UK failing to reach an agreement over the terms of its departure has left many concerned.

The British government has sought to reassure Europeans that their rights will be protected but recent immigration scandals have highlighted the complexities of changing people’s legal status.

In the last of a five-part series on the possible consequences of Brexit, Andrew Connelly explores how EU citizens in the UK fear being left behind.
