Whatever side of the Brexit debate you were on, we can all agree that no one was precisely sure what would happen next - and most people still aren't.

But with the deadline for Brexit approaching, the Home Office has released a video notifying EU citizens on the next steps to apply for UK citizenship.

Others highlighted the promises made my prominent Brexiteers in relation to migration before the referendum.
