BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Austria sees a heightened risk that Britain will fall out of the European Union without an agreement to avoid a hard economic crash, the country's foreign minister said on Friday.

Asked if Britain was heading for a hard Brexit, Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl said: "That is my estimation."

"In my view, there are lots of signs that indicate a hard Brexit," Kneissl told reporters as she arrived for a second day of talks with her EU counterparts in Bucharest.
