British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says the UK is to leave the European Union on 31 October with or without a Brexit divorce deal.

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

Johnson's "come what may" comments have raised concerns on both sides of the English Channel about economic damage.

Many economists say leaving without a deal will trigger a recession and cause economic mayhem, with shortages of fresh food, medicine and other goods likely as customs checks snarl Britain’s ports, though the claims have been repeatedly dismissed as scaremongering by Brexit proponents.

The main bone of contention between London and Brussels remains how to handle the movement of goods and people across the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to avoid the reintroduction of border checks, which some say could threaten the fragile peace process.

Pro-EU British lawmakers are gearing up for a last-ditch effort to prevent a no-deal Brexit, while Johnson stresses that his first duty is to carry out the wishes of the British people, who voted in a 2016 referendum by a narrow margin to leave the bloc.
