This is the emotional moment a French woman who has lived in the UK for 21 years confronts a Tory MP over Brexit.

Mother-of-three Ginie Moss, 41, called Britain’s departure from the EU a “catastrophe” as she slammed MP Richard Graham.

Ms Moss was one of 40 Remain constituents who doorstepped the MP at his office in Gloucester on Monday.

Pictures showed her breaking down in tears as she expressed concern over her family’s future.

Mr Graham tried to appease her by speaking French and spent 20 minutes answering questions during the anti-Brexit protest - one of several taking place across the country this week.

She shouted at him: "You're not listening to anybody here. I do not even live here, I am here to support these people because Brexit is major catastrophe."

Ginie, a French teacher from Bourton-on-the-Water, then began to cry as she continued: "I can escape - but I don't know what my husband is going to do without me.

"But these people are stuck here. You will not suffer the consequences for that, but we will.”

Mr Graham then attempted to apologise to Ginie in French, but she thundered at him: "Don't speak to me in French."

The Parisian had travelled 25 miles from her Cotswolds home to Gloucester to support her fellow Remainers.

She pleaded: "Listen to your constituents, everybody who is stood here."

The confrontation happened on Monday evening outside the door of Mr Graham's constituency office in College Street, Gloucester.

Around 30 to 40 people gathered as the MP spent 20 minutes answering questions put to him by the Gloucester for Europe group.

And after she had spoken to Mr Graham, a tearful Ginie said: "I educate British kids, and now I can see the rise of fascism with proroguing Parliament, and I’m really scared.

"I've been fighting this Brexit thing for three years now, I'm tired. I just want it to stop.

"I can escape, I can just give up everything and start a brand new life again, but I don’t want to do that. This is my home."

Ginie, who has lived in England for 21 years, added: "I have to apply for settled status. I refuse to apply. I will not apply for this until I really have to.

"I do not want to do this. They’ve got all the information on me, I pay my taxes, I work here.

"I want to be a good mother and not have to stand here with this MP that is not even listening to me, this is what I want.

"My family is going to be split up with the whole thing. I am in limbo here, I have been in limbo for three years.

"If we choose to start life again, at over 40, and go back to France for my husband. Will he be in limbo there as well? Life is just so uncertain."

Mr Graham told the crowd he ‘genuinely believes’ Prime Minister Boris Johnson intends to negotiate a deal with the EU.

The MP also said the prorogation of Parliament ‘isn’t ideal’ but assures people ‘we will have our say’ regardless.

At the same time as Mr Graham’s address, Mr Johnson pleaded with Tory MPs not to support measures to block a no-deal Brexit amid speculation he could call an election if he loses the Commons showdown.

The PM insisted: "I don’t want an election, you don’t want an election."

But he said he would not seek an extension to the Brexit deadline - which is what the cross-party alliance is demanding if there is no deal.

In a statement in Downing Street following an unscheduled Cabinet meeting, Mr Johnson urged his MPs not to join Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in backing a “pointless” delay.
