The UK will be hit with a three-month "meltdown" at its ports, a hard Irish border and shortages of food and medicine after it leaves leaves the bloc, according to Government documents on "Operation Yellowhammer" published by The Sunday Times.

However, Michael Gove - the Cabinet minister responsible for no-deal planning - insisted Yellowhammer represented a "worst-case scenario", and a Downing Street source claimed it had been leaked by a former minister.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said he is ready to leave the European Union regardless of whether he is able to renegotiate the Brexit deal struck with Brussels by his predecessor, Theresa May.

"The sooner that everyone recognises that we will leave on that day, the quicker we can move towards a good deal in everyone's interests".

"I think it's always better to leave with an agreement than without one". Protests and civil unrest are expected across the Irish border as a no-deal Brexit causes chaos.

The forecasts predict chaotic scenes, with new checks in place at a hard border in Ireland and ports clogged for up to three months by trucks unprepared for French customs.

European leaders have repeatedly rejected reopening an accord agreed by May previous year but then rejected by British lawmakers on three occasions, despite Johnson's threats that the country will leave then without an agreement.

Liberal Democrat MP Tom Brake said they showed the effects of a no-deal Brexit should be taken more seriously.
