3. The livelihoods and businesses of those in the fishing industry have been severely negatively impacted just like Peter:

4. EU Citizens living in the UK, like Lucrezia, are already experiencing what Brexit means for their lives:

5. “We are not even able to export at all at the moment” - excessive red tape is forming barriers to trade for businesses like Andrew’s:
