Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab said on Friday he was confident that Britain could get a good deal with the European Union that worked for Northern Ireland, the only land border with the bloc.

“We are confident we can get a good deal, good for all corners of the United Kingdom and good for every community here in Northern Ireland,” he told broadcasters.

“We are in engaged in a negotiation process. We have made it very clear that whether it is the customs regime for the UK as a whole, or the wider economic integrity of the UK as a whole, we will not allow any proposals to be accepted that would jeopardise that – that is the crucial thing here.”
