The deal is finally done. On a momentous day for the UK and EU, Rishi Sunak and Ursula von der Leyen signed a landmark Brexit agreement on Northern Ireland after years of tortuous wrangling.

Standing alongside the European Commission President in Windsor this afternoon, the PM hailed the “decisive breakthrough” as the beginning of a new era in the relationship between Brussels and London.

The deal – dubbed the Windsor Framework – revises arrangements in the controversial Northern Ireland Protocol which governs post-Brexit trade in the province.
