This as London published technical notices, advising businesses and others on how to prepare for a no-deal scenario - Britain crashing out, in potentially chaotic style.

"We are working constructively to reach a deal and whilst we are continuously working to this effect it is also clear that the withdrawal of the UK is going to lead to disruption regardless, so with a deal or without a deal," said Alexander Winterstein, European Commission Deputy Chief Spokesperson

"That's why everybody and particularly economic operators need to be prepared."
