LONDON (Reuters) - Britain needs to prepare for the possibility that no agreement will be reached with the European Union on a Brexit deal, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said on Thursday.

“The prime minister has made it very, very clear that we are going to get a deal, we are working for a great deal, but obviously we must make the right preparations as and when it is necessary for a no deal scenario,” he said.

“Of course that’s the responsible thing to do and that’s what we are going to do.”
