REPORT: Brexit border agreement reached between Ireland and UK

According to the Irish Times this morning, Ireland and the UK have agreed a deal to ensure there will be no 'Hard Border' between the Republic and Northern Ireland.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar is due to speak later today about 'phase one' of the Brexit talks.

A meeting on this with all political party leaders is set for lunchtime today.

The Irish Times are reporting that the "agreement is based on maintaining 'regulatory alignment' between Northern Ireland and the Republic after Brexit."
