The UK has worked out how it is unable to operate as an “independent trading nation” after Brexit, even if no market administer is reached with Brussels.

Prime Minister Theresa May told MPs “real and tangible progress” had been become in Brexit talks.

But the country must be prepared for “every eventuality”, as the government produced articles on future craft and customs groupings .

Labour said “no real progress has been made” since last June’s referendum.

BBC government editor Laura Kuenssberg said a “no deal” scenario was starting to appear “more likely” even if it was not something either line-up in the talks missed.
