Boris Johnson has promised to “drive a hard bargain” as he set out the UK’s negotiating position for a post-Brexit free trade deal with the US.

The government said a deal would boost the UK economy by £3.4bn and particularly benefit Scotland, England’s north-east and the Midlands.

It pledged to maintain food standards and said the NHS would not be for sale.

Meanwhile, talks between the UK and EU aimed at reaching a trade agreement formally kick off in Brussels later.

The talks on a free trade agreement with the US are expected to begin later this month.
