Brexit negotiations between the UK and officials representing the European Union are focusing on Ireland today.

The talks are due to continue until Thursday, when EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier and British Brexit Secretary David Davis will hold a press conference.

Ireland has held detailed talks with the EU about the impact of Brexit on the Good Friday Agreement and the Common Travel Area with Britain.

However, the UK has not yet given a detailed assessment to the EU on either topic.

Today, civil servants from Britain will brief an EU delegation on its views.

The meeting will be held behind closed doors.

A key issue is whether the UK's assessment of the challenges posed differs from the views already expressed by the Irish Government.

Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Theresa May has told members of her Conservative Party to stop infighting or risk letting Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn into power, according to Sky News.

Recent weeks have seen Tory politicians publicly bicker over Brexit and state spending as they manoeuvre ahead of a possible leadership heave.

Mrs May is expected to warn ministers at a meeting later today that cabinet discussions should not be leaked and public squabbling must end.
