There is “no point” in Michel Barnier coming to London for planned Brexit talks, Downing Street has said. 

The UK has rebuffed Brussels’ offer of intensified trade talks next week, telling the European Union’s chief negotiator there is “no basis for negotiations”.

Meanwhile, businesswoman Jennifer Arcuri has told The Daily Mail she had an affair with Boris Johnson in an interview. 

The British PM has faced allegations he used his position as London mayor to get the businesswoman favourable treatment.
