Lithuania running short of Lithuanians as they are all in Britain.

As many as 200,000 Lithuanians have arrived in Britain from the tiny eastern European nation under relaxed European border laws.

Many more have headed for other rich European nations such as Germany and France – and the entire population of Lithuania has shrunk by around ONE THIRD since 1995 to under 3m.

The loss of the former Soviet bloc nation’s brightest and best – and the backbone of its workforce – has left Lithuania facing crippling economic problems and the absolute necessity of recruiting refugee labour to fill in the gaps.
