As the debate around the Brexit agreement continues, the government has "ramped up" preparations for a potential no-deal Brexit. Ministers have also revealed letters have been sent to around 140,000 businesses outling actions they need to take to prepare for Britain leaving the EU without a deal.

We've got hold of the letter which references "immediate changes" to businesses that import and/or export goods in the EU will face if a deal is not reached. It was sent to us by Katia Sokolskaya, founder of tea brand, Nauteas.
