‘Eggs thrown, windows smashed, a family attacked in a park’: how ​Brexit impacted east Europeans
Father Ioan strolls the aisle of the Romanian Orthodox church in Redcliffe, Bristol chanting in Romanian, English and Church Slavonic while wafting a censer of incense among the faithful. By day, he works in construction; on Sundays, he tends the flock. Families and individuals come and go, among them Orvida, an IT worker who came for three months and stayed for six years; the paediatric surgeon who described himself as a “remain Eurosceptic”, although he didn’t have a vote; and Horatio, the former bank manager who found a job here as a care worker and runs his own business employing about 20 people.
