UK’s Johnson signs post-Brexit EU trade deal

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson signs a post-Brexit trade deal with the European Union, acclaiming it as the start of a “wonderful relationship” across the Channel.

“It’s an excellent deal for this country but also for our friends and partners,” he says at the signing in Downing Street, after EU chiefs Ursula von der Leyen and Charles Michel earlier had themselves inked the 1,246-page Trade and Cooperation Agreement.
