There are 20 days until Brexit, but just eight before Boris Johnson will be forced to ask for a delay if he hasn't secured a deal.

Speaking this morning, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar sad he expects the UK will table more detailed Brexit proposals after further meetings in Brussels.

"I'd anticipate that that will lead to some more detailed proposals being laid down and then the possibility for talks to enter the proverbial tunnel".
