Boris Johnson repeats December election push as EU agrees Brexit extension

Brussels ambassadors have agreed that an extension to Britain's membership of the EU is needed, but a decision on the length will not be made until next week.

The EU 27 accepted the "principle of an extension" and their work will continue in the "coming days", a European Commission spokeswoman said.

Boris Johnson was forced by Parliament to request a Brexit delay until January 31, and Chancellor Sajid Javid conceded on Friday that the Halloween deadline had now slipped away.
