BRUSSELS has a long way to go to end the deadlock over Northern Ireland, the PM’s Brexit chief has said.

It has to make significant changes to border checks and Euro judges’ powers must be curbed, Lord Frost insisted.

The warning came at a lunch with the EU’s Maros Sefcovic.

But Lord Frost boosted hopes of a deal by saying No10 would consider limiting rather than scrapping the EU court’s role.

And he said the offer to remove up to 80 per cent of checks on goods travelling between Great Britain and Northern Ireland was encouraging.

It came as French fishermen renewed threats to blockade Christmas goods heading for Britain.

Skipper Pierre-Yves Dachicourt, from Boulogne, said he lost half his income under the Brexit deal.

But a promised blockade of Calais yesterday did not materialise.

Meanwhile, France minister Bruno Le Maire said Britain’s supply problems had been made worse by Brexit.
