EU publishes no-deal contingency plans for travel and fishing if Brexit trade talks fail

The EU has published no-deal Brexit contingency plans as trade talks hang by a thread.
Boris Johnson and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen set up a deadline of Sunday for deciding whether to proceed with deadlocked negotiations.

Measures would ensure basic reciprocal air and road connectivity between the EU and the UK – and allow for the possibility of reciprocal fishing access.
In a statement, President von der Leyen said: “Negotiations are still ongoing.

“However, given that the end of the transition is very near, there is no guarantee that if and when an agreement is found, it can enter into force on time.

“Our responsibility is to be prepared for all eventualities, including not having a deal in place with the UK on 1 January 2021.”
