The EU is running out of patience with Britain over Brexit, the president of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker has warned, ONA reports.

In an interview with RAI, Italian state TV, Mr Juncker said he would like MPs in the UK to be able to reach an agreement over the way forward in the coming days.

“We have had a lot of patience with our British friends but patience is coming to an end,” he said.

The commission president added: “So far we know what the British parliament says no to, but we don’t know what it might say yes to.”

Asked if a second referendum might be possible, Mr Juncker said that was an issue exclusively for the British people.

His words were reported by his deputy chief spokesman Mina Andreeva. She tweeted that Mr Juncker had told the Italian interviewer he would “like that the UK tells us which way they want to follow now”.
