I work with a really nice young man called Alex.
He's about 24, a nice friendly young man who rarely takes time off work and when he is there he works hard and is a pleasure to be around.
At the beginning of last week he came into work looking upset, asked to have a word with our manager and when he came back it was obvious he had been crying.
Alex is Greek, he has been in Britain for around 5 years, lives with his girlfriend and seems happy.
He has been told he has to go back to Greece to do his National Service.
He leaves tomorrow, flies back to Greece on Sunday.
It's such a shame.
