Greeks living in the UK are heading to their troubled homeland this weekend to vote in a "pivotal" referendum over its economy, the Greek Embassy in London has said.

Voters will be asked in Sunday's poll whether to accept an austerity package put forward by international lenders in return for a further bailout from the eurozone rescue fund.

Greek citizens living in the UK can only take part in the referendum if they return to Greece to cast their vote.

A spokesman for the Greek Embassy in London said:

Many people will make the effort to go back if they can because it's a pivotal moment in our recent history.

We cannot measure the numbers, but I have heard of many people from the Greek community here in the UK going back.
