British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday there were still problems in the Brexit trade talks and Britain would "prosper mightily" without a deal. Johnson said he had earlier spoke to French President Emmanuel Macron about border issues, but not about Brexit.
Johnson said Macron was keen resolve border issues within hours. France shut its border to arrivals of people and trucks from Britain, closing off one of the most important trade arteries with mainland Europe over fears of a highly infectious new coronavirus strain.
"It was an excellent conversation with the French president: he stressed he was keen I would say to sort it out in the next few hours if we can," Johnson said. "Our teams will be working on it flat out and if we can result then that would be great, but we will do it as fast as we can."
Johnson also said on Monday that over half a million people had received the COVID-19 vaccine in the country.
