With two months still left to go, 2019 is already a record year for Brits becoming Swedish citizens.

So far, there are more than 4,100 Brits who have been granted citizenship, more than three times as many as last year.

And officials at the Migration Agency say preparations for Brexit only partly explain the rise in UK nationals becoming Swedes.
