Ireland should “prepare for the worst” and may need emergency aid from the European Union if there is a ‘no-deal’ Brexit, the former director general of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) has warned.

Speaking on RTÉ’s This Week, Pascal Lamy said a no-deal scenario has to be taken seriously because of the current divisions in the British government.
