The number of UK pensioners living in Spain has fallen – in the wake of Brexit – as Britain came out of the European Union last Friday.

Figures show that Spain is amongst countries where the numbers of UK pensioners have dropped, in this case by almost 2,000.

Figures published reveal a drop of 1,900 expats living abroad in the last five years, falling to a low of 467,000.

Spain has seen the largest fall of UK pensioners, with the number of retired expats falling by 1,590 to 105,206, accounting for 80% of the 2019 total fall.

One third of all UK expatriates in Spain are over the age of 65.
