ФУНТ СТЕРЛИНГОВ ПАДАЕТ НА ПРОГНОЗАХ О ЖЁСТКОМ БРЕКСИТЕ



Британский фунт стерлингов падает на валютных рынках, поскольку выход Британии из Евросоюза становится достаточно реальной перспективой.
Во вторник британская валюта рухнула до уровня двухгодичной давности по отношению к доллару, но потом отыграла несколько пунктов. Она также скатилась и по отношению к евро. Снижение стоимости фунта стерлингов означает, что туристам из Соединённого Королевства этим летом не приходится ждать за рубежом ничего хорошего.

The pound is falling on currency markets as a no-deal Brexit has become a very real prospect.
Sterling hit a two-year low against the dollar on Tuesday, before recovering some ground.
The currency also slid against the euro.
The fall in the value of the pound means UK tourists heading abroad could face a horrible summer.

The pound has continued to fall on currency markets as the government insists that the UK is prepared to leave the EU without a deal.
Sterling hit a fresh two-year low of $1.2120 against the dollar on Tuesday, before recovering some ground.
The currency also slid against the euro, falling to €1.0881 at one point.
The fall in the value of the pound means UK tourists heading abroad could face a "horrendous summer", according to one currency expert.
