Brits living in other European countries are among the most likely to want the UK to stay in the EU. In a new video from The Local, eight of them tell us why.
In a survey of Brits living elsewhere in Europe carried out by The Local in April, 67 percent of respondents said they would vote for Britain to stay in, a lead over the Leave side of 34 percent. More recent polls have come to a similar conclusion.
With polls in the UK showing voters split 50-50, the expat vote could end up playing a crucial role in the final result.
In this video, The Local asks eight Brits living in five European countries to say why they think Britain is better off in Europe.
