Business groups from across EU deliver Brexit warning to Prime Minister Theresa May at Downing Street talks

Business groups from across the EU have warned Theresa May on the threat to investment and jobs without "urgent progress" in Brexit talks within the next two weeks.

The delegation visited Downing Street to voice fears that current uncertainty over the UK's future trading relationship with the EU was damaging to firms across the continent.

Business groups from countries including Germany, France and Ireland joined UK counterparts in urging both sides in the break-up to heed their united stance on the need for trade talks to be given the green light by EU leaders at their December summit in two weeks' time.

They said a failure to agree a transition period by Christmas would risk more of their members triggering contingency plans for a cliff-edge Brexit in March 2019.
