British and European negotiators have agreed on a text that deals with the Irish border, although it would not be correct to say that the negotiations have concluded, Irish broadcaster RTE said on Tuesday, citing two "well-placed" sources.

The agreement includes a so-called "backstop" that will come in the form of a temporary UK-wide customs arrangement, with specific provisions for Northern Ireland which go deeper on the issue of customs and alignment with the rules of the single market than for the rest of the United Kingdom.

It will also include an agreed review mechanism, RTE said, adding that it understood there is "further shuttling" to be done between London and Brussels.
