A lorry driver from Salisbury, Wiltshire, was left baffled after applying for a job as a lorry driver near his home and being told he was not allowed to interview due to his nationality.

Michael Fowler, 39, applied for the job which required 'EU citizens with a good level of English'. However, he soon received an email from recruitment agency Blu Global, telling him 'our positions exclude British candidates.'
