Sinn Féin MP Michelle Gildernew has said the rights of all citizens and workers must be protected.

The Fermanagh South Tyrone MP said:

"The British government's destructive Brexit agenda has thrown the lives of tens of thousands of citizens from across the world and living in Britain and in the north of Ireland into uncertainty.

"Our public services rely on the hard work and dedication of tens of thousands of workers from from Europe and further afield.

"The enormous contribution these workers make must be acknowledged and their rights and conditions must be protected.

"This is yet another illustration of the damaging consequences of Brexit."
