DUP Leader Arlene Foster has said her party is in talks with the Government about a Brexit deal.

It comes after Prime Minister Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement was defeated in a vote in the House of Commons for a second time.

Ms Foster, who is in the United States this week, said she is “not going to give a running commentary” on the discussions.

She said she is “focussed on getting a deal”.

The DUP leader said: “We’re talking to the Government and the attorney general to try and make a deal happen because we want to see Brexit working for the whole of the UK in a way that doesn’t leave Northern Ireland behind.”

MPs at Westminster have been debating a series of Brexit amendments on Thursday.

Later they will vote on whether to request an extension of Article 50, until 30 June.
