💥 BREAKING: Theresa May 🇬🇧 arrives in Strasbourg for last-ditch Brexit talks with Jean-Claude Juncker 🇪🇺

  |   World News

Theresa May touched down in Strasbourg Monday night for last-minute Brexit talks with European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker and other EU leaders.

The Prime Minister's meeting was confirmed by Downing Street on Monday evening.

It will be Mrs May's final throw of the dice ahead of Tuesday's Commons vote on her Withdrawal Agreement.

The talks with Mr Juncker will be one last opportunity to secure legal assurances on the Irish backstop - and in doing so secure the vital support of hardline Tory Brexiteers and the DUP.

Ministers in the Irish cabinet were also summoned to an emergency government meeting on Brexit.

A government source confirmed the hastily-arranged meeting took place at 7pm on Monday night.

If her deal is defeated on Tuesday, MPs will then vote on Wednesday whether to support a no-deal Brexit.

If a no-deal Brexit is rejected, members will get a vote on Thursday on requesting an extension to Article 50 and delaying EU withdrawal.
