Boris Johnson says Irish backstop must be dropped if UK is to leave EU with a deal | ITV News

Boris Johnson has written to the EU, saying that the Irish backstop must be dropped if a deal is to take place.

The letter comes just hours after Downing Street said freedom of movement between the UK and the EU will end on Brexit day, if Britain leaves the bloc with no-deal.

However, following conversations between the Prime Minister and the Irish premier, free movement between the UK and Ireland will still continue.
