Ex-pats’ mark on EU
ELDERLY ex-pats who have settled in Spain make up about one in seven of all British residents living in the EU, new figures suggest.
Some 119,400 British citizens aged 65 or over are estimated to be living in Spain – 15% of all British people who have made their home in another mainland EU country, Office for National Statistics figures say. A further 29,300 are in France and 14,900 in Germany. In total, 784,900 British citizens live in the EU, not including the UK and Ireland.
