The total value of UK goods and services sold overseas was a record £547.6billion, the statistics showed.

International Trade Secretary Liam Fox hailed the news as the latest evidence that Britain’s global trading links are already expanding ahead of the scheduled exit from the EU in 2019.

Dr Fox said: “Over the past twelve months we’ve helped secure more foreign direct investment projects than ever before, supported thousands of UK businesses on their export journey, and continue to promote the UK’s trade values across the world.

“Britain has always been a great trading nation and we want to agree a deep and special partnership with the EU including a bold and ambitious free trade agreement and a customs agreement.
