BORIS JOHNSON has insisted the UK is ready to leave the EU without a deal this month after a final push in exit preparations. Documents setting out plans for borders, businesses, citizens, medical supplies and security were released as talks with Brussels reached crisis point.

The Prime Minister said walking away without an agreement was not what he wanted but the country must depart in three week’s time. In a foreword to a 155-page report setting out details of the measures the government has put in place, Mr Johnson wrote: “We have made huge strides in preparedness, and can now confidently say that the UK is prepared to leave the EU without a deal on October 31.” The largest peace-time public information campaign is under way to drive home to businesses and the citizens what actions they need to take.

Ministers insisted there will be no overall food shortages but supplies of some produce may be hit.

A special unit to support medical supplies firms is being set up to make sure companies have the correct customs paperwork in place.

Extra transport capacity has been secured to allow medicines to be imported smoothly and critical products are being stockpiled.

Measures to stop illegal fishing in UK waters once the country becomes an independent coastal state have been put in place.

The documents warn that EU boats catching fish without permission after October 31 “will be doing so illegally” and face heavy penalties.

Exports and imports between the UK and the EU will be carried out based on world trade rules.
