Clegg: Liam Fox's view of trade outside EU is 'fantasy'

Liam Fox's insistence that Britain can maintain free trade with the European Union post-Brexit is a "work of fantasy", Nick Clegg has said.

The former deputy prime minister warned that instead businesses would face a "deluge of bureaucracy and paperwork".

International Trade Secretary Dr Fox had said that trade with the EU can be "at least as free" as it is now, and that the UK would work with the World Trade Organisation on "taking an axe to red tape across borders".
