Workers in the West Midlands are the most 'pessimistic' in the country about their career prospects following the EU referendum result, according to a study. However, the survey found that the majority of workers in the UK appear to be 'optimistic'.

A survey of 1,000 employees found that four in five believe their salary could increase because of Brexit.

A separate poll of managers found that one in seven predict they will have to reduce workers' salaries if Article 50 is triggered. The younger generation were least negative, said the report by Jobsite.

Nick Gold, chief executive Jobsite, said:

Four months have passed since the UK's decision to leave the EU, so we are now getting a clearer understanding on people's opinions of the future.
