The Sun covers a letter written by the Home Secretary to EU citizens in the UK.

In her letter, the Home Secretary said says she is “proud" that so many EU citizens have built lives in the UK and made it their home.

The coverage also notes that the Home Secretary wanted to reassure EU nationals about the new system being designed to handle settled status applications, saying “there won’t be bureaucratic hurdles,” and that it “will cost no more than the fee a British person pays for a passport”.
