The debate on how Brexit might effect the country's science and research sectors has been raging in our region.
Cambridge, which is world-renowned for its cutting edge medical research, hosted Parliament's Committee on Exiting the European Union.
The experts came from the space sector, academia, life sciences and medical research.
Their concerns included whether Brexit would make it harder to recruit the best staff, participate in Europe-based projects such as the Gallileo space programme and attract investment.
Meanwhile, pro-Brexit MPs insist that leaving the European Union will provide new opportunities for the science and research sectors.
Some of the region's independent garage owners are warning their businesses could be damaged by Brexit.
They're worried that a European regulation called the 'Right to repair', which forces companies to give them access to technical data to fix cars, will be stopped when we leave the EU.
Independent garages deal with around 67% of all repairs on our cars and research shows they are around 40 per cent cheaper than the big Franchise dealerships.

Hungarian-based airline Wizz Air has applied for a UK licence ahead of Brexit. It plans to set up a Wizz Air UK subsidiary at London Luton Airport, where it currently operates 41 routes. This will begin in March 2018 subject to receipt of an Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) and Operating Licence from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
The firm pledged to employ more than 100 people in management, pilots and cabin crew roles at Luton by the end of next year.
It follows the airline opening its first base in the UK at Luton in the summer.
Wizz Air chief executive Jozsef Varadi said:
"It is a natural next step in the development of our UK business and will bring additional investment and jobs to our UK base at London Luton. "The UK remains the single biggest travel market in Europe and we are currently the UK's eighth largest operator, and this move is also part of our broader strategy to ensure that our UK operations are Brexit-ready. "We look forward to working with the CAA to take this application forward."
