Brexit trade deal agreed between EU and UK

The UK and the EU negotiating teams have reached a deal in post-Brexit trade talks.

“We have finally found an agreement,” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said at a press conference held at 2.55pm.

In the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “we’ve taken back control of our laws… of every jot and tittle” of UK laws and regulations.

“Clearly they’re still negotiating, and still trying to finalise a deal, but certainly the momentum is that we will get a Christmas Eve Brexit deal,” Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney said this morning.

“Hopefully Brexit will provide us with good news this Christmas Eve.”
