It is “obvious” there will be a hard perimeter in Ireland in the event of a no-deal Brexit, the European Commission’s chief spokesman has said.

Margaritis Schinas made the comments at the commission’s daily media briefing.

If he was pushed to speculate what might happen in a no-deal scenario, he said, it was “pretty obvious you will have a hard border”.

However, the Irish government has repeated its posture that it will “not accept a hard border on this island”.
