Brexit: UK and EU reach trade deal

The EU and UK have reached a post-Brexit trade deal, ending months of disagreements over fishing rights and future business rules.

The United Kingdom and European Union have agreed on a post-Brexit trade deal after months of torturous negotiations, averting the prospect of a chaotic and acrimonious divorce at the end of this year.

The announcement today came just one week before the UK exits the EU’s single market and customs union on December 31.

“Deal is done,” a Downing Street source said. “We have taken back control of our money, borders, laws, trade and our fishing waters.

“The deal is fantastic news for families and businesses in every part of the UK. We have signed the first free trade agreement based on zero tariffs and zero quotas that has ever been achieved with the EU.”
