Honda at Swindon receives 2m components per day thanks to free movement of goods. After a no deal Brexit, to store the minimum 9 days' worth of components on site, they would need to erect the 3rd-largest building on Earth: 300,000 sq m = 42 football pitches. (source: FT 26.6.18)

I can't see Honda staying in Swindon after a no deal Brexit. The town is already semi-depressed with lots of town centre shops closed or closing (e.g. House of Fraser) so to loose a major employer would have a devastating impact.

I heard the strange and cheering (not) news this morning that the PM of Ireland wants to stop Britain using Irish air space in retaliation to fishing restrictions.
