Brexit - I was asked to pay an extra £82 for my £200 coat

"I had no idea at all I was going to be charged any more for deliveries after Brexit. The extra costs were definitely a bit of a shock."

Ellie Huddleston, a 26-year-old Londoner, thought she would treat herself to some new work clothes in the January sales.

Having spotted a bargain, she placed an order for a coat and a number of blouses from two of her favourite clothes brands based in Europe.

But both deliveries were delayed, held up in customs checks for at least a week, she says.

Poor you.  Unfortunately I can't feel any sympathy for your predicament.  We all knew there would be some changes and some things were going to get more expensive, but we've done the deed and need to adapt.

As a number of people on Twitter are saying, 'Buy British', which may be more difficult than you think since we don't manufacture as much as we used to.  Still, we should try to do that and support our own rather than buying from abroad.

£200 is a lot of money to pay for a coat by the way IMHO.

We're all going to have to get used to new restrictions, and that is an expensive coat, but each to their own I say..
