    A deal has been agreed between the UK and the European Union, allowing Brexit negotiations to move on to the next stage, pending a vote in the European Parliament. A deal had to be done imminently to allow EU nations to ratify it at next week's summit.

    Negotiations had stalled over citizens' rights after Brexit, the UK's so-called divorce payment, and in particular the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

    It's been 8 months since May signed Article 50 which triggered Britain's departure from the European Union.

    Fifteen months remain to decide the details of the divorce.
