    The European Union's top negotiator says there are "fundamental" disagreements between the bloc and the UK over citizens' rights.

    The statement comes as the two sides wrap up the second round of talks on the country's exit from the EU, known as Brexit.

    A major sticking point is the $70bn financial settlement to leave the EU that needs to be resolved. And Brussels is adamant it is non-negotiable.

    Al Jazeera's Sonia Gallego reports from London.
