The organisation found that of those who had sent a gift to the EU since Brexit, 34 percent had had their item delayed, 30 percent were hit by unexpected charges and eight percent had their gift go missing.

Joanna Harry sent six packages from south Wales to Andalusia, Spain in early September.

One package was returned to her a week after posting, but as of yesterday the remaining five were still being held in Spanish customs, the Observer said.

She told the newspaper: “I have telephoned customs numerous times, but I’ve been hung up on due to language barriers, and most of my emails – both in Spanish and English – are getting no response.”
