“We have as yet no details of funeral arrangements except I have been advised that it will be a private family one. I understand that a celebration of Anne’s life and work will be held at a later date and details will be promulgated when available.

“Brexpats in Spain will continue to provide our services as Anne would have wished.”

Anne worked tirelessly to help the hundreds of thousands of Brits whose lives were upended by the Brexit vote.

She worked closely with the Olive Press in recent years, and even wrote a column for the expat paper for a time.

Publisher Jon Clarke said today: “Anne was tireless in her work and a true inspiration to the expat community.

“We worked very hard together to campaign against Brexit from Spain, and I always admired her tenacity.

“Despite not getting the result either of us wanted, Anne dedicated years to helping Brits deal with the fallout.

“My condolonces to Anne’s friends and family.”
