Business leaders here are asking the Irish Government to help secure an early announcement of an extension to Brexit grace periods.

Dublin says it wants to ensure European officials are aware of the impact of decisions on Northern Ireland, while Foreign Minister Simon Coveney has spoken in favour of "modest extensions".

Talks between Irish officials and the European Commission were due to take place yesterday.
