LONDON (Reuters) - The British government has decided that unless there is a deal struck with the European Union within a week, the default option of a no-deal Brexit becomes the probable outcome, ITV’s political editor said on Monday.

“The UK government - not Brussels, not the EU 27 leaders - has decided that unless there is a Brexit deal within a week, the default option of a no-deal Brexit becomes the probable outcome, which is why officials are working through the night,” Robert Preston wrote on Twitter.
