Hi-tech British industries have issued a warning over the impact of Brexit, claiming it is "silently killing" the country's technology sector.

A new survey of the country's fastest growing technology companies found uncertainty over Britain leaving the European Union could cost "an incalculable" number of jobs in a previously thriving industry.

Plus, a new report from Britain's £60bn life sciences and pharmaceuticals industry has urged the Government to maintain positive relationships around trade and immigration with the European Union to help the industry thrive.

The report from the UK's BioIndustry Association (BIA) and the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) was undertaken to help provide "a focus for the sector at an uncertain moment". The report says Britain should retain EU trading access.
