Still no breakthrough in sight’: Tusk’s verdict after meeting May

“Still no breakthrough in sight” – Donald Tusk’s verdict after his meeting with Theresa May in Brussels this afternoon.

Mrs May insisted she was still determined to deliver Brexit on time – but the only agreement which was actually reached today was to hold more talks before the end of this month.
