The European Union says there could be a short no-deal period in January - even if a Brexit trade deal is reached.

The EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, updated member states this morning, as talks continue with the UK.

A short extension of the transition period, possibly lasting two or three months, was another option discussed.

Both sides are running out of time to implement a deal by December 31st - with fisheries and the level playing field the sticking points to a deal being reached.

Mr Barnier has also said it is the EU's responsibility to give the talks every chance of success.

He says there has never been such a comprehensive agreement negotiated in such little time.
