The United Kingdom is set to formally leave the European Union on 31 January, becoming the first country to leave the bloc and reducing its membership from 28 to 27 nations.

AP is planning to bring you a range of services tailored to your needs.

The government plans to mark Brexit by projecting a clock onto the prime minister’s official residence at 10 Downing Street that will count down until 11 p.m. (2300 GMT) when the break officially takes place. The entire government neighbourhood of Whitehall is to be illuminated for the occasion as part of a light show, with the U.K.'s Union flag flown on all the poles in Parliament Square. Prime Minister Boris Johnson plans to make a speech that night to mark the occasion.

The only land frontier between the U.K. and the bloc - between EU member Ireland and the U.K.'s Northern Ireland - remains open, with goods and people flowing freely between the two sides without border checks.

The U.K.'s departure will open a new phase of Brexit, as Britain and the EU race to strike new relationships for trade, security and host of other areas by the end of 2020 – an ambition that is considered by many experts to be optimistic.
