A No 10 spokesperson said "very large gaps remain" but talks will continue

Boris Johnson's dinner with EU chief Ursula von der Leyen - aimed at breaking the Brexit trade deadlock - has ended without agreement. A No 10 spokesperson said "very large gaps remain" but talks will continue, with a "firm decision" by Sunday on whether a deal can be reached, while Brussels said the two sides were still "far apart". Major disagreements remain on fishing rights, business competition rules and how a deal will be policed.
