A survey has found that almost half of people surveyed in Jersey and Guernsey believe their governments are not doing enough to prepare for Brexit.
In a recent survey by Guernsey-based Island Global Research of more than 2,000 Islanders, 45% of people in Guernsey and 49% of people in Jersey answered 'No' to the question 'Do you think your government is doing enough to prepare for Brexit?'.
The inquiry also found that 61% of Jersey respondents would now prefer Britain to remain in the EU, while 21% would favour a no-deal Brexit and 17% would support a departure with a deal in place. The survey also asked people in the Isle of Man their opinions on Brexit. Here, the majority (51%) of people asked wanted Brexit to happen.
Across the three Crown Dependencies, younger residents were heavily in favour of Remain, with 79% of the 25- to 39-year-old age group surveyed indicating a pro-EU stance.
By comparison, just 25% of over-75s surveyed would prefer the UK to remain in the European Union, with older age groups showing a preference for Leave.
The government has stated that Jersey will be affected by Brexit in a number of ways, including Islanders' facing longer queues when they travel to France and having stricter checks applied to pets and vehicles, should they wish to travel to the continent.
Businesses in the Channel Islands are gearing up efforts to open new trade links with France, as the UK heads to general elections in December.
Concerns have also been raised about disruption to supply routes, which may leave the Island short of some types of fresh produce, if it originates from the EU.
Three of the Island's major supermarkets have indicated that they are confident they will be able to cope with any increased demand for food ahead of Brexit but residents were still advised to stock on extra food, as they would for an extended bank holiday weekend.
