The EU will not accept the UK’s suggestion that goods crossing the Irish Sea to stay in Northern Ireland should do so without any additional bureaucracy, EU vice president Maroš Šefčovič has indicated.

The Government and the EU have similar proposals for introducing red and green lanes for goods coming into Northern Ireland, with goods staying in Northern Ireland using the green lane, and goods at risk of going into the Republic going down the red lane, with more paperwork and more checks.
