European migrants in Ipswich will be able to get valuable advice on the consequences of Brexit at an event being held at a Portguese cafe.

Suffolk Law Centre is organising the event at Bicafe o Portugues, in Norwich Road, Ipswich on Thursday, November 21.

The free advice session, between 10.30am and 1.30pm, is designed for EU citizens to answer key questions, such as how Brexit will affect their rights to live and work in the UK and whether they need to apply for EU Settled Status.

EU nationals have told they may need to apply for Settled Status to remain in the country once the UK leaves the EU, although the date of Britain's withdrawal has been delayed several times.

At the moment, Britain is due to leave the EU on January 31 2020.
