official has warned that controls at the border will have to return
if the UK leaves the Customs Union. Michael Lux says that a system
of "red and green lanes" could be introduced as a form of customs
control on border roads. Here's our Economics
and Business Editor John Campbell. Thousands go across the border every
day with out customs checks. That is because the UK and Ireland are
members of the UK elite macro -- EU customs union. Its members aren't
free to do their own trade deals. Theresa May said there will be no
return to the borders of the past and that a new arrangement will be
negotiated. I do want us to have a customs agreement with the EU.
Whether that means we must reach a completely new customs agreement,
become an associate member of the customs union in some way or remain
a signatory to some elements of it I hold no preconceived position. But a
former head of customs sieges at the European Commission save there will
have to be changes. He suggests we could see a system like the one
operating on border roads between Norway and Sweden. There will be
Irish customs official is, and UK customs officers, so if you have
goods to declare you go to the red channel and then customs will deal
with you, if you go through the green channel you can pass through
freely. There is no certainty that this is the sort of arrangement we
will end up with, but Brexit does mean that change is coming.

stay still. Let's get the forecast
now, here's Barra. Hello, a story this weekend has been
settled and it is set to stay that way for the next few days. That is
thanks to high pressure dominating our current weather system. Denied
it is already turning quite chilly out there, subzero temperatures
across the board. We will see -2 or three degrees in some places so a
widespread frost can be expected and also some pockets of fog, some of
that fog especially in western counties could cause problems on the
roads first thing tomorrow, something you bear in mind perhaps
if you are travelling a thing. Otherwise tomorrow, high pressure
stays in control, and we can expect a largely settled today. So, to
begin with yes, there will be a good amount of frost out there to watch
out for and also some fog which may be slow decay in some places but
eventually it will do so, and overall a calm start. Sunshine will
burn through as well. The good news is if you are travelling tomorrow,
right across Britain and Ireland with that high pressure dominating
us all it's a fine day, plenty of drying weather around there, some
good amount of sunshine. Some will struggle, though, to get into the
mid single figures especially in the northern half of Britain, and across
the Northern Ireland here, nine or 10 degrees. -- the south of Ireland.
Not a bad day to be outdoors. The good news for us, temperatures
reached six or 7 degrees, maybe eight especially across eastern
counties where we get some prolonged spells of sunshine and right through
the baby winds will stay nice and light. A bit of a change coming
tomorrow evening, cloud thickening up and you can see the rain coming
in behind me. It moves in during Monday evening and overnight for a
while on Tuesday that most of that should have gone by two used a
morning. Tuesday I mild day but cloud begins later, expecting some
damp weather to reach Western counties. It shouldn't be very much.
Eastern counties, sunny gaps in the day. Overnight into Wednesday,
Wednesday and Thursday high pressure tries to cling on we can expect a
good deal of dry weather. Of course, stay tuned! Good night.
