#FerryNews - At the centre of the Conservative Party is an ongoing spat over post-Brexit customs arrangements that shows a solution remains out of reach.

As the Daily Post writes, Theresa May’s preferred new “customs partnership” model was instantly shot down in flames by Brexiteers – showing agreement within the cabinet is proving elusive, never mind completing a deal with the EU.

At the frontline of this whole battle is the port of Holyhead - often forgotten when the talk at a UK level has all been about the land border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Port Authority Stena Line say Holyhead’s growth has been down to the “open ports policy” and any delay as a result of custom or border checks could disturb the whole business mode.

Since the completion of the EU’s Single Market in 1993 and the removal of checks between Wales and Ireland, the volume of freight travelling between Holyhead and Dublin has increased by 694 per cent.
