A Spanish father and his French wife living in Newcastle have told ITV Tyne Tees of their uncertainty over Brexit.

Daniel Mallo and Armelle are both lecturers in architecture at Newcastle University. Son Eilias, nine was born in Spain, while six-year-old daughter Ines was born in Newcastle.

On Wednesday, Prime Minister Theresa officially triggered Article 50 for Britain to leave the EU.

They told ITV Tyne Tees they have concerns around their right to permanent residency.

Daniel said: "Living through this process without knowing what is going to be the outcome is rather unsettling.

"We just feel like 'okay give us some clarity' about what could happen. We are taxpayers and we'd like the right to remain automatic, without the burden of applying. And I think that's not asking too much - it's just simply settling a right that already exists."
