The president of the Royal Society has called on the government to guarantee the residency of EU citizens in the UK.

Prof Sir Venkatraman Ramakrishnan says EU scientists working in Britain could leave amid a climate of uncertainty.

The Science Minister, Jo Johnson, said the UK would continue to attract the brightest and best to work in the country’s universities.

He added that he hoped that the nation’s research institutes would continue to receive EU funds.
