Hopes rise for UK-EU trade deal but two sides remain far apart

Boris Johnson suggested there was still hope of a post-Brexit trade deal with the European Union but the two sides remained “very far apart”.

Mr Johnson said the UK would not be walking away from the negotiating table, but a no-deal outcome was still the most likely scenario.
