Senior ministers back UK PM May ahead of EU summit: May's spokesman

LONDON (Reuters) - Senior British ministers supported Prime Minister Theresa May at a Brexit-focused cabinet meeting on Tuesday and there was no suggestion anyone would quit the government, May’s spokesman said following the meeting.

Ahead of a key European Union summit this week, May told ministers there would be challenging moments ahead in negotiations with Brussels, but she was convinced that if the government stood firmly together they could achieve a deal that delivered on the 2016 Brexit referendum.
