A woman interrupted a live television interview and gave a heartwrenching speech which laid bare the impact of Brexit on EU citizens living in the UK.
The Portuguese woman fought back tears as she said she had ‘given up her youth’ to the UK during a protest against prorogation in London on Wednesday.
She revealed she had ‘looked after children and the elderly’ in the UK for some 20 years but had ‘no voice’ and faced being deported after October 31.
The woman has since been named as Ana Rocha, who was born in Lisbon and is a healthcare worker specialising in looking after people with disabilities.
She has now revealed she has moved to work and live in Scotland for ‘fear of reprisals.’
