If the UK votes to leave the EU, it would probably still be able to negotiate access to its biggest export market, though it may lose some control regarding rules and how they are set. Foreign secretary Philip Hammond warned that "the mood of goodwill towards Britain would evaporate in an instant" if it left the EU. Read the whole story in the Independent.
