Brexit deal reached between UK and European Union ahead of New Year's Day deadline - ABC News

More than 1,600 days after the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, a final trade deal has been agreed to that will avoid border and economic chaos on New Year's Day.

Downing Street confirmed that the deal had been sealed, saying it delivered on the promises given during the decisive 2016 referendum and in last year's UK general election.

"We have taken back control of our money, borders, laws, trade and our fishing waters," an official statement read.

"The deal is fantastic news for families and businesses in every part of the UK."

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen told a press conference in Brussels the deal was "fair" and "balanced".

"It was a long and winding road," she said.

"But we have got a good deal to show for it.

"It is fair, it is a balanced deal, and it is the right and responsible thing to do for both sides."

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson tweeted a picture of himself inside Downing Street, raising both arms in a thumbs-up gesture of triumph, with the words "The deal is done".


More to come.
