Brexit: British government publishes no-deal assessment

The document says riots, food price rises and reduced medical supplies are real risks

The British government has published a document outlining its contingency plans in the event of a no-deal Brexit. It estimates a fall in the flow of goods from mainland Europe of between 40 and 60 per cent from day one. It also suggests there could be protests, increased food prices and a reduction in medical supplies.

Also on the programme: The African migrants travelling through South America to make it to the United States; and remembering the singer Daniel Johnston who has died at the age of 58.
