Brexit news latest- Trade agreement BACK on, says Barnier as French fishermen threaten to block ports over no deal drama

A TRADE deal could be back on the cards, Michel Barnier has said.

It comes after the PM agreed to a list of compromises at the weekend.

Last week, No Deal was looking very likely, prompting furious French fishermen to threaten to block ports in protest.

Trawlermen said they would respond to being shut out of UK waters by stopping ferries carrying vital goods from entering major ports.

But last night Michel Barnier said a post-Brexit trade deal with the EU is STILL possible as Britain and the EU yesterday agreed to “go the extra mile” to reach a deal despite missing their latest deadline.

And Boris Johnson hinted Brexit talks could last right up until New Year’s Eve – the final day of the Brexit transition period – as he vowed Britain “won’t be walking away”.

And analysis of the situation by the BBC’s Katya Adler suggested the EU is now hinting that concessions could be on the cards within the next few days as the end of the transition period looms.
