Prime Minister Theresa May will visit China later this year according to her spokeswoman.

The visit will be the latest in a series of foreign visits designed to cement ties with major trading powers as Mrs May negotiates Britain's divorce with the European Union.

No specific details about the trip were released but Mrs May is keen to secure foreign support ahead of Britain's talks to leave the EU.
