Theresa May under pressure to break Brexit talks impasse

(TAP)- Theresa May is under increasing pressure from all sides to break the impasse in the Brexit talks.

The DUP says there is "work to be done" if it is to agree to plans for the future of the border with Ireland.

Irish PM Leo Varadkar said he was willing to consider new proposals and suggested the UK might put something forward later.

Ambassadors of the 27 EU member states are understood to be "waiting for something from London".

On Monday, Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party - whose support the PM needs to win key votes at Westminster - objected to draft plans drawn up by the UK and the EU.

The DUP said the proposals, which aimed to avoid a "hard border" by aligning regulations on both sides of the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, were not acceptable.
