The European Commission will take legal action against the governments bid to potentially override parts of the Brexit deal that was agreed last year.

Boris Johnson is pushing through legislation that would break international law, called the “Internal Market Bill”.

The bill would let ministers hand themselves the power to determine rules on state aid and goods travelling between Northern Ireland and Great Britain.
