  7. Watch: Brexit concerns grow for Lincolnshire expats

    UK Prime Minister Theresa May has said the EU must treat the UK with "respect" in Brexit negotiations.

    Her comments come after after EU leaders said Mrs May's Chequers plan would not work, at a summit in Salzburg.

    The latest development won't address the concerns of people from Lincolnshire who now live elsewhere in the EU.

    There's already an agreement that UK citizens abroad will have their rights protected, the same applies to EU nationals living in the UK.

    The husband of a pregnant woman from Bradford who was killed in a road collision in Lincolnshire says their three-year-old daughter still cries out for her mum at night.

    Mrs Zdeb was 14 weeks pregnant at the time and died from injuries to her liver and heart from the "massive impact".

    Her widower Kamil Zdeb today said: "I wouldn't wish the pain that we have suffered on anyone."

    Quote Message: I just can't believe she has gone, we were young, our lives in front of us, we had so many plans. I have a child, three years old, who needs a mother and she hasn't got one." from Kamil Zdeb
