Boris Johnson due to hold crunch talks with European Commission President ahead of Thursday's EU summit in Brussels

Boris Johnson is due to hold crunch talks tonight with the President of the European Commission Ursula vonder Leyen, ahead of Thursday's EU summit in Brussels.

The Prime Minister is reported to have said that both sides should ‘move on’ if nothing is agreed by then.

And, Downing Street has warned that there are still 'stark' differences between the UK and the EU over the terms of a post-Brexit trade deal as the clock ticks down to Boris Johnson's deadline tomorrow.
