The US imposed tariffs on a record $7.5 billion worth of European Union goods on Friday, earning a swift threat of retaliation by the EU.

The tariffs took effect just after midnight in Washington. Airbus, French wine and Scottish whiskies are among the high-profile targets with Europe ready to hit back against its own list of iconic or politically sensitive US products next year.
