May attends Brexit dinner in Brussels

Political Editor

Theresa May and Brexit Secretary David Davis rushed over to Brussels this afternoon for dinner, and Brexit talks, in the European Commission.  The surprise meeting with Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and chief negotiator Michel Barnier is part of a big diplomatic push by the Prime Minister to try to break the deadlock in the negotiations.

She wants EU leaders to agree that the talks can move on to how a transition deal would actually work.
