The Taoiseach says there's a few more hurdles to overcome if there's to be a Brexit deal this evening.

Talks are ongoing between EU and UK officials with mixed reports on whether a legal text can be put on the table tonight.

Tonight is considered the deadline if an agreement is to be put to EU leaders in Brussels on Thursday.

Chief EU negotiator Michel Barnier says a legal text must be decided by midnight tonight.

It would still face the hurdle of a vote in the House of Commons - but Leo Varadkar says Boris Johnson has given him some assurances:

"The Prime Minster said to me that if we could come to an agreement, between the EU and the UK, that he was confident that he would be able to get it through the House of Commons."
