This is the moment a caller told LBC that Brexit represents "self-sabotage".

Sally in Sevenoaks told LBC she feels she is "grieving" and that she is "struggling" to deal with her "frustration" and "anger" at "all that we've lost" as a result of Brexit.

She went on to state that Brexit represents a piece of "self-sabotage".

Sally added: "I've enjoyed a career as a musician travelling around Europe as a pianist and a singer, playing in beautiful venues and getting to know the culture in all these wonderful countries that offer so much for all of us.

"And I'm not saying I can't still do that, but there's going to be a lot more red tape and it won't have the same sense of belonging as I felt very European."

She later said that Brexit "sends out such a negative message to the rest of the world".
