According to the national stats agency, Copenhagen is by far the favourite city for Brits who've chosen to live in Denmark. The capital is followed by second-largest city Aarhus, also a university city. Copenhagen has almost six times as many British citizens as Aarhus, with 5,920 in Copenhagen, and 1,097 in Aarhus. The next-most populous municipalities for Britons are Gentofte, with 755, and Frederiksberg with 661. These are also considered part of the greater Copenhagen area. These are followed by Odense with 563, 367 in Aalborg, 356 in Esbjerg, 278 in Lyngby-Taarbæk and 262 in Rudersdal. The municipality with the fewest number of Brits is Læsø with only 3. As shown in the map above, Brits have spread quite far across the country and live in each of its 98 different municipalities. Reasons for why they have chosen to live where they do vary and are reflected in part by the type of occupations they have. "I moved to Denmark in 2010 after meeting a Danish man, … [Read more...] about Map: Where do Denmark-based Brits live, and how many have become Danish citizens?

Harry Shindler, 97, was part of the Allied landings in Anzio near Rome to liberate Italy from fascism in 1944. He eventually settled in the country, which he had first visited as a soldier, in 1982 with his wife and son. His campaign to get Brits abroad the vote has made him a legendary figure whose campaigning work inspired the citizens’ rights group British in Europe. “So many Brits abroad have gotten involved. They’re all coming together,” Harry Shindler told The Local at his home in Porto d’Ascoli, on the Adriatic coast in Italy. Jane Golding joined the campaign for the so-called 'votes for life' bill in 2011. The Berlin-based lawyer and co-chair of British in Europe – the grassroots campaign to secure the rights of Brits living in the EU – credits Shindler’s work on the votes for life bill as the genesis of the pan-European British rights campaign, a first movement of its kind by Brits spread across Europe.

ED SHEERAN'S Shape of You is the first song to be streamed more than 2billion times on Spotify. The incredible feat means that Sheeran's popular track remains – by far – the world's most popular song. The stunning milestone means Shape of You has been streamed for around 7billion minutes – or 14,776 years. Sheeran himself is also likely to have made a tidy sum from his Spotify success. Spotify can pay up to $0.0084 per stream, which works out at around $16.8million (£13.4million). However, this money would be shared between people who worked on the song, and wouldn't all go to Sheeran. And the star even managed to squeeze another song into the top 10 list, with 2014's Thinking Out Loud ranking fifth with 1.2billion streams. Ed Sheeran praised his own achievement in an Instagram post, writing: "Thank you world. First song to two billion streams on Spotify." The closest competition for Sheeran is rapper Drake, whose One Dance track has been streamed 1.6billion … [Read more...] about Ed Sheeran song smashes 2BILLION Spotify streams milestone in world first – earning him millions of pounds
