Germany's Angela Merkel no longer leading the charge on climate change

Tuesday 17:17 GMT

Monday 21:50 GMT

Germany’s political fragmentation deepened after allies of Angela Merkel took a beating in a crucial regional election in Bavaria, raising questions about how long the chancellor can keep control of her brittle coalition government.

Angela Merkel: Brexit deal looking 'more difficult'

Angela Merkel has spoken of growing difficulties in striking a Brexit deal as the European council president, Donald Tusk, warned that a no-deal scenario was “more likely than ever before”, following the latest derailment of talks over the Irish border. “We were actually pretty hopeful that we would manage to seal an exit agreement” but “at the moment, it looks a bit more difficult again”, the German chancellor told the German Foreign Trade Federation of the latest talks, which have largely been held in secret.
