The European Consumer Centre says the public will pay significantly more for goods from Britain if no trade deal is struck between the EU and UK.

The Centre says a whole new range of tariffs will be imposed on imported British items under World Trade Organisation terms.

Talks between the UK and EU on a future relationship are ongoing in Brussels with no sign of a deal imminent.

Cyril Sullivan of the European Consumer Centre says prices on some UK-imported items could increase by as much as 40 per cent.
