EU and UK Officials reach text agreement over Irish Border

EU and UK negotiators have agreed a text that deals with the Irish border.

There will be one backstop to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland.

The backstop will come in the form of a temporary UK-wide customs arrangement, with specific provisions for Northern Ireland, which go deeper on the issue of customs and alignment on the rules of the single market than for the rest of the UK.
