European Union Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, says the possibility of striking a Brexit deal with London is very difficult but possible, ahead of talks with EU lawmakers in Brussels.
He says the EU will remain calm, vigilant, respectful and constructive.
Barnier is due to hold talks with his British counterpart, Stephen Barclay, on Thursday.
This is following a round of technical talks on new British proposals that do not appear to have delivered a breakthrough. (NAN)
