When Lynn and Richard Briscoe and their daughters left Biggleswade to start a new life in Portugal, they thought, as their house was being repossessed, that life could only improve.

But with forest fires and cash running out, the dream is fading. ‘We thought we knew it all – we didn’t,’ says Lynn [pictured] in Our Wildest Dreams, whose partner Richard gave up his teaching job.
