Theresa May prepares to head to Europe to seek a Brexit extension

Political Editor

Theresa May will head off around  Europe tomorrow to try to get a further Brexit extension.

She will meet Angela Merkel in Berlin and Emmanuel Macron in Paris ahead of the emergency EU summit in Brussels on Wednesday.

She spent today in talks with Cabinet Ministers and senior Tory backbenchers.

There were no cross-party talks with Labour – they resume between officials tonight.

But Jeremy Corbyn said he still doesn’t know what concessions the Prime Minister is prepared to make.
