EU's Tusk, Britain's May meeting for Brexit talks in London

Both leaders agreed that the tone of discussions had been positive on both sides, and agreed that they would seek to remain in close touch as the negotiations progressed.
Mrs May and Mr Tusk agreed to try to "lower tensions" on the issue. The European Parliament on Wednesday backed the bloc's chief negotiator in demanding Britain pay as much as 60 billion euros ($64 billion) for outstanding commitments.

In a statement, a No 10 spokesman said the Prime Minister was determined to achieve the "best possible deal" for Gibraltar as well as the UK. That raised hackles in Britain, where some saw it as a bid by Madrid to assert control over the future of an enclave that has been British since 1713.
