Britain is ideally seeking tariff-free access to the European Union's single market, the minister in charge of negotiating the country's exit from the bloc said on Thursday.

"With respect to access to the single market, what we will seek to do is ideally have a tariff-free access but this is a matter of negotiation," David Davis told reporters in Northern Ireland."We will be negotiating over an issue I suspect is in the interest of other members of the EU and others to get a good trading relationship in the long run," he said.
