EU leaders are to meet for an emergency summit in Brussels to decide whether to offer the UK another delay to Brexit.
Prime Minister Theresa May wants to postpone the date the UK leaves the EU beyond this Friday, until 30 June.
But the EU is expected to offer a longer delay, after European Council President Donald Tusk urged the other 27 leaders to back a flexible extension of up to a year – with conditions.
Mr Tusk added that “neither side should be allowed to feel humiliated”.

That head-to-head follows five days of talks between the government and Labour officials aimed at breaking the Brexit impasse.
