Brexit trade talks “on a knife edge” with time running out – BBC News

Negotiators for the UK and the EU have been in last-ditch talks to try to secure a post-Brexit trade deal.

The head of the UK team, Lord Frost, said they were “working very hard” to reach an accord, although Ireland’s Prime Minister said things were on a knife edge.

The UK left the EU at the beginning of 2020 and the two sides have been talking for months to try to agree a new trading relationship – when the transition rules end on January 1st.

Three main areas remain unresolved between the UK and the EU – fishing rights, competition rules and how any deal would be enforced.

Reeta Chakrabarti presents BBC News at Ten reporting by political correspondent Chris Mason, Reality Check’s Chris Morris and Europe editor Katya Adler in Brussels.
