    British Prime Minister Theresa May is on her way to China for a visit intended to boost trade between the countries.

    She is taking a large delegation of manufacturers, bankers and heads of service industries with her.

    But the visit is happening with May weak at home and a leak of internal British government documents showing worries that Brexit will damage the economy.
