EU leaders risk having blood on their hands if they continue stalling on Brexit, Theresa May warned last night.
The PM said Europe’s ability to tackle terrorism and serious crime was being ‘put at risk’ by the lack of agreement on a security deal.
Ministers are furious at the insistence by Brussels that the UK must be treated like any other ‘third country’ after Brexit and should no longer be trusted with sensitive security information.
British sources accused the EU of placing ‘obstacles’ in the way of security co-operation. Mrs May last night said the stance would make it impossible to continue co-operation on security at the existing level, potentially putting lives at risk.
