DUP warns May: no Brexit deal that separates Northern Ireland from UK

Fri, 9th Nov 2018 07:15

LONDON, Nov 9 (Reuters) - Northern Ireland's DUP has written to British Prime Minister Theresa May to say that it will not support a Brexit deal that leaves Northern Ireland separated from the rest of the United Kingdom.

The European Union wants a customs border in the Irish Sea, between Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom, in the event of a no-deal Brexit, a letter from Theresa May seen by the London Times newspaper suggested. (Reporting by Sarah Young; editing by Guy Faulconbridge)
