Brexit deal ‘closer than it was yesterday’: UK government source

LONDON (Reuters) – Progress has been made in agreeing the text for Britain’s divorce terms with the European Union, with only a couple “sticking points” left to finalize a withdrawal agreement, a government source said on Tuesday.

“It’s closer than it was yesterday,” the source said after May updated her cabinet ministers on the negotiations.
