The EU has proposed "significant changes" to a key Brexit agreement in a bid to satisfy the UK, after Boris Johnson's chief negotiator said he would be prepared to suspend the Northern Ireland Protocol entirely if a consensus was not reached. An EU official said changes to the protocol go "far beyond tinkering at the edges" of the agreement, but the bloc is refusing to renegotiate how the deal is governed - a red line for the UK - meaning an agreement is still unlikely to be found. The EU said it is prepared to remove 80% of official checks on a wide range of agrifood products - including sausages, which have been a key area of contention - in a bid to satisfy the UK. • Subscribe to ITV News on YouTube: http://bit.ly/2lOHmNj • Get breaking news and more stories at http://www.itv.com/news Follow ITV News on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/itvnews/ Follow ITV News on Twitter: https://twitter.com/itvnews Follow ITV News on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/itvnews/
