The Telegraph reported that Britain could restrict imports of European mineral water and several food products. This surfaces under tit-for-tat measures being considered by ministers, over Brussels’ refusal to end its blockade on British shellfish. Some senior government sources also pointed to potential restrictions on the importing of mineral water and seed potatoes.

With Brexit concerns back in play, the pound could come under fresh selling pressure, prompting a corrective decline in the GBPUSD from the 34-month high of 1.4200.
