The European Council president Donald Tusk has issued a “last call” to the UK to “lay the cards on the table” if a Brexit deal is to be done in time.

He said the “most difficult” issues were unresolved and “quick progress” was needed if agreement was to be reached by October.

Talks continue over the terms of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU in March next year. What happens to the Irish border remains a sticking point.

According to BBC News, the UK says both sides want to see a “faster pace” in talks.

But Prime Minister Theresa May has been unable to say much new at this summit – the last one before October – because she has yet to get her cabinet to agree on a blueprint for the UK’s future relationship with the EU.
