Divisions are opening among Europe’s leaders over how to handle Britain’s exit from the union, as the European parliament president called on the UK to “deliver now” on its Brexit vote but a key aide to Angela Merkel insisted London should “take the time to reconsider the consequences”.

As government and EU advisers on Sunday began preparing next week’s crunch summit, the US secretary of state, John Kerry, is due to fly to Brussels and London on Monday for urgent talks.

Martin Schulz, the president of the EU parliament, led the call for formal exit talks to be launched as early as Tuesday. “We expect the British government to deliver now,” he told Germany’s Bild am Sonntag. “The summit on Tuesday is the appropriate moment to do so.”
