Sunday, 20 October 2019 - 6:43


UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has sent a request to the EU for a delay to Brexit - but without his signature.

The request was accompanied by a second letter, signed by Prime Minister Johnson, which says he believes that a delay would be a mistake.

The Prime Minister was required by law to ask the EU for an extension to the 31st October deadline after losing a Commons vote.

EU Council President Donald Tusk tweeted that he had received the extension request.
