Gary Younge explores what Brexit means for Eastern Europeans living in the UK. In the second episode, Gary meets members of the Polish community in the north east of England.

The issue of immigration and immigrants dominated the EU referendum campaign with much of the focus on the increased numbers of Eastern Europeans in the UK following EU expansion in 2004. They are often talked about - but rarely spoken to.

Writer and journalist Gary Younge meets Eastern Europeans who live in the UK. He explores the impact of the Brexit vote on these communities and considers how the vote and their experiences fit into the history of race and migration in Britain.

In this second programme, Gary meets members of the Polish community in the North East of England.
