The US has delayed its removal of trade tariffs on UK steel and aluminium products amid concerns at the government’s approach to the dispute with the EU on post-Brexit trade rules affecting Northern Ireland.

The move was met with a defiant response from Whitehall as a spokesperson said it would not “affect the UK’s approach” to the talks with Brussels on changes to the Northern Ireland Protocol – designed to prevent a hard border on the island of Ireland.
