Donald Tusk : Brexit means drifting apart but we don't want to build a wall

Donald Tusk has insisted the EU "does not want to build a wall", but Brexit means "we will be drifting apart".

The EU Council president said Theresa May wanted to "demonstrate at any price that Brexit could be a success", but that was not the EU's objective.

He was unveiling draft guidelines for the EU side for negotiations on post-Brexit relations with the UK.

Mr Tusk said the EU wanted an "ambitious and advanced" free trade agreement with zero tariffs on goods.
