The two leaders met on Wednesday afternoon and agreed a “programme of work” to try to find a way forward to put to MPs for a vote.
It is understood that each party has appointed a negotiating team, which are meeting tonight before a full day of discussions on Thursday.

He said the meeting was “useful, but inconclusive”, and talks would continue.
