Wednesday morning news briefing: 24 hours to find a Brexit compromise

The EU has “24 hours to find a compromise” or Brexit talks will collapse. That is the warning from Downing Street as Boris Johnson launches a last-ditch push to avert a no-deal exit. But the Prime Minister’s chances of a breakthrough with Brussels look increasingly unlikely.

After meeting Mr Johnson in Downing Street, European Parliament president David Sassoli said the two options left available to the UK were “extension or no deal”. The PM is now hoping to gain concessions from his Irish counterpart Leo Varadkar during a meeting anticipated later this week. Otherwise, the EU talks are likely to end formally on Friday.
