A NEW film showing people from all corners of the world becoming British citizens in West Sussex has just been released.

Every year hundreds of new British citizens take part in special citizenship ceremonies organised by West Sussex County Council registration service in Chichester.

The ceremonies are part of the government’s efforts to help immigrants to this country feel at home and British.

The film gives an insight into the ceremonies and features interviews with some of Britain’s newest citizens and their families.

Mike Coleman, council chairman, said: ‘It should help to give the community a better understanding of what it takes to become a British citizen.’
