The problems and opportunities facing the UK and the people in it as Brexit comes nearer was the subject of a public meeting hosted by Robin Walker MP in Worcester on Friday.

Over 50 people crowded into the old courtroom at the Guildhall to put questions to Mr Walker on a wide variety of Brexit-related topics.

Among the topics raised were data security, the position of British military veterans with spouses originating in Europe and the ability of young people to find temporary work while taking gap years and travelling.

Many of those asking questions were Worcester residents who come from Europ and who were worried about their position when Brexit goes ahead.

After the meeting, Mr Walker - who is the undersecretary of state for the Department for Exiting the European Union, n - said it had gone very well.

He said: “This is the first time that I have had a public meeting like this and it has been most interesting to hear what people are concerned about."
