Anguilla eyes uncertain future after Brexit

The impact of Britain’s departure from the EU is being felt on the other side of the world. Residents of the British overseas territory of Anguilla have UK passports but weren’t allowed to vote in the referendum. Yet their relationship with the European Union is fundamental to their everyday life. Anguilla is 4,000 miles from the UK – in the eastern Caribbean. It depends on the neighbouring Island of Sint Maarten just ten miles across the sea for vital services. But Sint Maarten is half-French and half-Dutch. So will that strong relationship change after Brexit?
