Theresa May is set to hold talks with Irish leader Leo Varadkar as she tries to break the deadlock over the Irish border backstop.

The prime minister is to fly to Dublin to resolve a dispute over the mechanism after spending Thursday in talks in Brussels.

The backstop – a customs plan to avoid a “hard” border between Ireland and Northern Ireland if a Brexit deal is not reached – remains the main stumbling block in Mrs May’s plan to take the UK out of the European Union.

Meanwhile, Attorney General Geoffrey Cox will meet with his Irish counterpart Seamus Woulfe.
