A FIREFIGHTER is hoping the Brexit chaos consuming the UK won’t pull him from his Clydebank home.

Gil Paterson, the town’s MSP, has written to First Minister Nicola Sturgeon to highlight the case of Fabrice Dubois.

The EU national has worked for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service since 2009 and puts his life on the line to save others.

He also has two Scots-French children and fears for what the future holds for his family.

Fabrice, 34, told the Post: “It’s more stressful sometimes than being a firefighter - nobody has answers with Brexit. It’s something so completely out of my control.

“The first two years it was more disappointment than worries. But from last summer, that’s when it really started to set in and I started to stress about small possibilities.

“It’s been worrying with all the events that are happening, all while nothing is really happening.”

Mr Paterson said: “I find it deeply disturbing and unacceptable that someone like Fabrice, who puts his life on the line on a regular basis, should have to worry about his future in Scotland.

“The people of Scotland benefit enormously from the contribution EU nationals like Fabrice make to our society and their treatment at the hands of the UK Government is disgraceful.

“Clydebank is Fabrice’ home and he is very welcome here.”

Mr Paterson submitted a question for First Minister’s Question Time on behalf of Fabrice last week but the session ran out of time before he could put it to Ms Sturgeon.

Martin Docherty-Hughes, West Dunbartonshire’s MP, added: “The UK Government has treated EU nationals appallingly. Scotland has been Fabrice’s home since 2005; he lives in Clydebank with his family and worked for the fire service for more than 10 years.

“There are thousands of EU nationals working in Scotland’s public services, making a vital contribution to our communities. Yet they face fear and uncertainty over their futures here post-Brexit.

“It’s completely unacceptable and Fabrice has my full support in challenging this UK’s Government’s shameful immigration policies.”
