The Welsh and Scottish governments have said they will work together to try to keep the UK in the European Union. Mark Drakeford and Nicola Sturgeon also called on the next prime minister to "change course and rule out" leaving the EU without a deal. The first ministers are becoming "increasingly alarmed" by "hard-line rhetoric about a no-deal Brexit". The joint statement was released ahead of a meeting of the British-Irish Council (BIC) in Manchester on Friday. The UK government's de facto Deputy Prime Minister David Lidington and the Irish PM Leo Varadkar also attended the meeting. Mr Varadkar warned that leaving without a deal would have a "very severe impact" on trade between Holyhead and Dublin ports. Welsh First Minister Mr Drakeford met Mr Lidington for a one-on-one meeting on Thursday night and held talks with Scottish First Minister Ms Sturgeon on Friday morning ahead of the BIC event. What will be the effect on the economy?
