UNCERTAINTY surrounding Brexit is a top concern for the region’s farmer, says a Blackburn law firm.

Speculation ahead of tomorrow’s crunch vote in Parliament has been singled out as a worry by Napthens.

Andrew Holden, the outfit’s rural head, has spoken out as their Farm Future service, a fixed-cost offering for agriculture, covering regulations and succession planning, racks up 60 more rural clients.

Mr Holden said: “We know from speaking to clients across Lancashire that they are facing a range of pressures and concerns as they plan for 2019, and the team reports that chief among these is the uncertainty around Brexit.

“Businesses are concerned about the possible lack of workforce with many growers and pickers struggling to recruit a European workforce even before Brexit.”
