Davis tries to reassure Tory Euro-sceptics over Brexit

The Chancellor Philip Hammond has risked stirring up more Tory divisions over Brexit  by suggesting the UK should seek a “middle way” in the negotiations.

Yesterday he earned a rebuke from Downing Street after saying changes in relations between Britain and the EU could be “very modest”.

But in a speech in Middlesbrough, the Brexit Secretary David Davis tried to smooth things over,  insisting there was “no difference” between him, the Chancellor and Theresa May.
