Farming in the shadow of Brexit, part 2

The countdown to Brexit continues. One of the biggest sticking points has been the future of the frontier between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. And that uncertainty is raising concerns for farmers on both sides of the border.


In part two, our team meets with Robin Swann, leader of the Ulster Unionist Party and member of the suspended Northern Irish Assembly, as well as Journalist Thomas Hubert of the Irish Farmers Journal.

And our reporters Clovis Casali and Anaïs Guérard visit farmers in the UK and France to look at how Brexit could affect their lives.
