A Brexit deal has been agreed with the EU, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said.

Mr Johnson tweeted: “We’ve got a great new deal that takes back control — now Parliament should get Brexit done on Saturday so we can move on to other priorities like the cost of living, the NHS, violent crime and our environment.”

Boris Johnson has said: “We will leave the EU’s Customs Union as one United Kingdom and be able to strike trade deals all around the world,” after announcing a new Brexit deal.

In a Twitter thread, the Prime Minister continued: “This new deal ensures that we #TakeBackControl of our laws, borders, money and trade without disruption & establishes a new relationship with the EU based on free trade and friendly cooperation.

“This is a deal which allows us to get Brexit done and leave the EU in two weeks’ time, so we can then focus on the people’s priorities and bring the country back together again.

“This new deal takes back control. Under the previous negotiation, Brussels maintained ultimate control and could have forced Britain to accept EU laws and taxes for ever.

“We will leave the EU’s Customs Union as one United Kingdom and be able to strike trade deals all around the world.”

Mr Johnson added that the “anti-democratic” backstop had been abolished.

Mr Johnson is due to make a statement when he arrives in Brussels at about 12.30pm UK time, Downing Street confirmed.

The announcement came as Mr Johnson was heading for a crunch EU summit in Brussels and follows days of intense negotiations.
