The Royal British Legion will stop selling poppies in the EU because of red tape, it is claimed.
It’s said the charity can no longer cover the costs – including customs charges.
In a letter to supporters The Legion said it will “need to cease sales to customers in countries in the EU for the foreseeable future until legislation surrounding Brexit is reviewed”.
Poppies are worn during October and November for Armistice Day.
The money raised goes to help members of the armed forces, veterans, and their families.
A Government spokeswoman said:
“We are focused on supporting UK organisations as they adjust to our new trading relationship with the EU.
“The work of The Royal British Legion and the money they raise through their annual poppy appeal is incredibly important and we will engage with them to ensure they get the support they need to operate in the EU.”
