British Prime Minister Boris Johnson awaits EU decision on Brexit extension after timetable delay; general election imminent

Boris Johnson is awaiting news on a Brexit extension from the EU after a defeat over his fast-track timetable last night.

The Government appears to have conceded the October 31 deadline, after it was defeated in a bid to push through his withdrawal agreement bill legislation this week.

The PM is expected to push for an election if the bloc sanctions a delay of up to three months.
