    The EU's chief Brexit negotiator has called for an agreement on the Irish border ahead of a summit in June.

    Michel Barnier is visiting the border between Northern Ireland, which is part of the UK, and the Republic of Ireland.

    He repeated warnings that Britain leaving the single market and customs union could result in a hard border.

     

    Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee reports from the border.
