Can Poland Weather the Brexit Storm?

Close to a million Poles live in the UK, sending billions of pounds home, helping revitalise Poland's economy. So will Brexit rock the boat? Joe Miller reports.

Close to a million Poles live and work in the UK, taking full advantage of the freedom of movement that came with the country's accession to the EU in 2004. The billions of pounds they have sent back home over the years has helped to revitalise the Polish economy - the only one in the EU not to fall into recession after the 2008 financial crisis.

But Poland's miraculous rise is down to more than a mobile labour force. Today, cities like the Warsaw are global business hubs, attracting more investment every day. So can external factors like Brexit rock the boat?

Joe Miller reports from the Polish capital.
