In agreeing a deal to guarantee the Irish border remains invisible, with no checks fuelling inter-community tensions, the UK is moving the border to the Irish Sea. But the Democratic Unionist party (DUP) fears it will create an unwelcome new Brexit burden in Great Britain, forcing manufacturers to take on a mountain of paperwork and breaching Theresa May’s promise that east-west trade would remain unfettered. While the DUP softened its previous opposition to such an outcome, Sammy Wilson, the MP for East Antrim, raised concerns about the impact facilitating Boris Johnson’s new deal would have on businesses exporting from Great Britain to Northern Ireland.

A government report on Operation Yellowhammer was leaked on Sunday, revealing the probable consequences of the UK leaving the EU without a withdrawal agreement, which is due to happen on 31 October.
