Brexit trade deal still possible, says Michel Barnier – video 

Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator,  says a 'good, balanced agreement' on a trade deal is still possible, as negotiators continue talks ahead of the 31 December deadline. 

Barnier stressed the EU had never before tried to reach such a complex agreement with a country in such a short space of time. 

Britain and the EU enter the final stretch of the negotiations with renewed hope of a deal being struck within days, after Boris Johnson and Ursula von der Leyen agreed to “go the extra mile” and ordered the resumption of talks in Brussels
