Welsh farmers fear no-deal Brexit

Boris Johnson has spoken about turbo-charging plans for a no-deal Brexit. But in a phone call with the new Prime Minister last night, Wales’s First Minister is said to have made it “emphatically clear” that a no-deal scenario would be catastrophic for the agricultural sector.

At this week’s Royal Welsh Show, farming unions have been warning about the impact of tariffs on Welsh lamb exports to Europe, despite assurances from Westminster that farmers will get direct support if there’s no Brexit deal. We report from Powys in mid-Wales.
