America will not negotiate a new trade deal with Britain until the UK's future relationship with the European Union becomes clearer.

US Trade Representative Michael Froman said on Monday that the two countries cannot launch negotiations on bilateral trade and investment deals until more is known about any newly-shaped agreement between Britain and Europe.

Speaking to British counterpart Liam Fox, Mr Froman said the "United States will be prepared to engage in conversations with the United Kingdom about how to develop our trade and investment relationship in the best way at the appropriate time".

Last week, Prime Minister Theresa May told German Chancellor Angela Merkel that the UK would not rush its exit from the EU.

Britain voted in a referendum to leave the European bloc over a month ago.

Mixed feelings on Trump among Ohio voters

Wood County in Ohio, with a population of 130,000, has voted for the winner in 23 of the last 29 presidential elections.

ITV News spoke to people in the city of Perrysburg to get a picture of who might so far have the lead in the presidential race.

Many said that they didn't vote for either Republican nominee Donald Trump or his Democract opponent Hillary Clinton in the recent Primary contest.

Many see Ohio as a must win as no Republican has ever won the White House without it.

The feeling on the streets here is that they aren't keen on either candidate- so it is all to play for.
