Short Brexit update
Rail companies have hatched a plan to mitigate the fallout of a hard Brexit on vital freight deliveries by creating single border customs checkpoints up and down the country.
The failure to agree a customs deal could see trains, 2,000 of which delivered 1.22 million tonnes of freight last year, stacked up either side of the Channel Tunnel. With parts held up at a border points businesses may then be left standing idle waiting for deliveries.
