Update on negotiations after EU leaders’ rejection of Chequers plan
The BBC is reporting that May will restate that she is committed to the Chequers plan for the Brexit negotiations. She is likely to make an appeal to EU leaders to engage on the details. Here’s the BBC’s story.
Plus the BBC’s political editor Laura Kuenssberg has an update on the power situation in Number 10 (I can’t quite believe I’m typing that).
Statement being delayed by technical, not political issues – can’t quite believe it but apparently the power isn’t working properly in Number 10

The statement is supposed to be at 13.45 – but Sky News’ political news editor reveals there are a few technical problems.
Metaphor alert: there’s currently no power in the room at No 10 where the PM is going to make her speech. Might delay things a bit.
