Concern among Humber businesses over Brexit negotiations

The president of the Hull and Humber Chamber of Commerce says businesses need to see some real progress on Brexit negotiations.

Phil Ascough says there are some real concerns on how the talks are going.

It follows a meeting in the city with the British Chamber of Commerce in Germany.

He says: "There's clear concern that the politicians are not paying enough attention to the needs of business going forward with Brexit. 

"We had people in the room who were pro Brexit, who were remain, but they were all on the same side when it came to this need to look at how business is going to survive, not just survive, but thrive."

It comes as the man behind Article 50 says Brexit can be reversed.

Lord Kerr wrote the legislation that allows any country to leave the EU.

The date of departure is going to be enshrined in law - 11pm on the 29th of March 2019.

But Lord Kerr insists that doesn't make leaving inevitable.
