Brexit: M&S temporarily cuts hundreds of products in Northern Ireland

Marks & Spencer's has temporarily stopped selling hundreds of items in its Northern Ireland stores due to Brexit red tape.

The retailer said it feared its food would be blocked due to new rules governing shipments between Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

A growing number of firms have spoken out about paperwork delays at ports.

The government said traders and hauliers need to take steps to comply with new border rules.

M&S took the decision to temporarily drop hundreds of products, including chocolate fudge pudding and sweet and sour chicken, from its Northern Ireland stores after it saw competitors' lorries barred from travelling between the mainland and Northern Ireland.

The retailer said it aimed to get the products back up for sale soon.
