EU launches legal action over Boris Johnson's Internal Market Brexit Bill.

BRUSSELS has accused Boris Johnson of acting in bad faith and started suing Britain today over his move to rewrite last year's Brexit deal.

The European Commission will kick off the legal process which could end up in a bumper bust up in the European Court of Justice.

European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen announced the news this morning.

She told the media: "This morning the Commission has decided to send a letter of formal notice to the UK government.

"This is the first step in an infringement procedure.”

Brussels bosses set Britain a deadline of yesterday to remove the controversial parts from the internal markets bill - which critics say overwrites the Brexit deal.

Ms von der Leyen has sent a letter to the PM giving him a month to set out his case defending the law, which has already passed the Commons.
