Dorset Council has published a report listing the potential impact of Brexit, when it eventually happens.

You can read the full story here but below is a summary of their predictions.

They have ranked much of the potential impact as a medium risk, and it includes: 

  • Public disorder
  • A rise in hate crime
  • Increase in the number of safeguarding referrals to social services
  • A return of ex-pats to the area
  • Difficulties in recruiting or retaining EU workers within adult social care
  • Problems with waste disposal as some the county’s residual waste is exported

And all of the problems could be exacerbated should they coincide with problems caused by bad weather or a widespread outbreak of flu or the winter vomiting bug.
