Oakdene Farm in Kent is heavily reliant on seasonal workers from the European Union to pick soft fruit and employs some 1,200 workers during the peak harvesting season. However, a drop in the value of the British pound since the Brexit referendum and uncertainty over the country’s future relationship with the EU have made Britain a much less attractive place for workers. For the first time in years, the owner of Oakdene Farm - who voted for Brexit - struggled to recruit workers, leaving 150 tons of raspberries unpicked and rotting. Photos for @nbcnews

Three PM, north London. As the remnants of Hurricane #Ophelia sweep across the UK, Saharan dust and debris from fires in Portugal and Spain are filtering the little sunlight coming through the clouds a bright orange.
