Fishermen in the UK are halting their exports to European Union countries over new border bureaucracy introduced by the government as part of Brexit.

It comes as the Brexit campaign group Leave.eu has moved its internet registration to the Republic of Ireland in order to keep its .eu domain name after the UK left the European Union.

The group was founded by businessman Aaron Banks and supported by Nigel Farage and has pushed for the hardest possible Brexit since it pushed for Leave in the 2016 referendum.

Meanwhile, parcel courier DPD UK has said it was pausing its road delivery services into Europe, including Ireland, until at least Wednesday and Debenhams announced it was suspending online sales to Ireland due to “uncertainty” about the new rules, which mean some products are now subject to tariffs. Other major retailers were reported to be considering similar steps.
