"I don't know how I feel, I just think it's a shame that this has arisen. But I hope that things don't change too much, having to have visas like it's going back years now, how it used to be. I just think the way things are at the moment, you can go into Portugal, into all these other countries in Europe, no problems, and if that changes it's going to be a shame."

"There's no point in having a second referendum. They had the referendum, people decided what they wanted and there's no point in having a second one. Although I do think people might change their mind."

9. SOUNDBITE (English) Neil Connelly, builder, has lived in Spain for six months:
"I think that there are an awful lot of British over in Spain and they put a lot of money, a lot of money into the economy and I think it would be very positive for the Spanish to make it is easy as for us just to live here."
On another warm, sunny March day in the Costa del Sol, tourists could be seen taking a stroll by the beach in Torremolinos, with others enjoying a leisurely lunch on Friday.
The thousands of British ex-pats in the area have been given a slice of good news by the Spanish government in the on-going Brexit saga.
The government wants to grant a broad range of rights to British people living in Spain even if the United Kingdom leaves the European Union without an agreement on its relations with the bloc.
The measures announced on Friday still require the Spanish parliament's blessing, and some provisions will be time-limited and will depend on the British government granting reciprocal rights to Spaniards living in Britain.
The Spanish government is preparing to issue new residency permits to some 400,000 British citizens.
Some 300,000 Britons already legally resident are included in that number, but they will need a new type of residence card.
At least 150,000 Spaniards are resident in the U.K..
Valerie Joan-Severa has lived in Spain for the last 31 years.
She says she was delighted with the Spanish health service when she had a minor operation a few years ago.
She is concerned, however, about the impact a no-deal Brexit scenario could have on people's ability to freely travel across Europe.
Neil Connelly is a new arrival, having lived in Torremolinos for just six months.
He thinks Spain should make things as easy as possible for UK ex-pats to remain there, mainly because of their contribution to the Spanish economy.
Madrid is offering continuing free care in the Spanish public health service to British residents for a 21-month period after Brexit, if Britain offers the same to Spaniards.
British residents will also still be entitled to Spanish welfare payments after the divorce under the same conditions.
Spain will verify two months after the law comes into effect whether the U.K. is reciprocating on those services.
