EU raises the spectre of a trade war over UK's plan to alter Brexit deal.

The European Union has said the UK's plan to alter parts of the Brexit agreement is "not acceptable", and raises the prospect of a trade war, if the Government goes ahead.

The Foreign Secretary Liz Truss today outlined proposals to change sections of the deal relating to trade with Northern Ireland.

But the plans have been cautiously welcomed by the Democratic Unionists, who are refusing to restore the devolved Government in Northern Ireland over the issue.

Sky's Deputy Political Editor Sam Coates reports.
