Concorde worker faces euro choice

Concorde worker Colin Eustace

A former worker on Concorde says he may have to return to the UK after moving to France where he worked on the jet.

Colin Eustace, from Weston-super-Mare, moved to Toulouse 40 years ago but says the pound's collapse against the Euro may force him back to the UK.

Speaking ahead of the G20 meeting of global leaders, Mr Eustace said all the Brits abroad were feeling the pinch.

"This devaluation of the pound means that all the people here in France are facing a financial problem."

He added: "From my point-of-view, having lived here nearly all my life, I've looked forward to a nice retirement here in France.

"Unfortunately with the collapse of the pound against the euro, my income which is paid into an English bank, has plummeted.

"And if things continue in the current fashion I shall have no option but to return to the UK."
