EU agrees to Brexit extension to 31 January

The EU has agreed to extend Brexit until 31 January 2020, according to a tweet from the European Council president, ONA reports citing BBC.

Donald Tusk said the bloc would allow for a so-called "flextension" - meaning the UK could leave before the deadline if a deal was approved by Parliament.

It comes as MPs prepare to vote on proposals by Boris Johnson for an early general election on 12 December.
