Davis accuses European Commission of pressuring UK

Political Editor

The European Commission is using pressure tactics to force Britain to pay up for Brexit, according to Brexit Secretary David Davis.

Labour’s shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer said the slow progress of the negotiations was being caused by the Prime Minister’s “deeply flawed red lines”.
