    UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson's promise to leave the European Union with or without a deal has faced several parliamentary defeats this week.

    But as he visited Northern Ireland and held talks with the Democratic Unionist Party, he says there is a way of getting a new Brexit deal with the EU, and he was prepared to talk to European leaders about it.

    The Irish border has proved a key sticking point in attempts to reach a deal.
