EU has "done all that is possible," says Tusk

European Council President Donald Tusk says the EU is "disappointed" by tonight's Brexit result -- and that it has done "all that is possible to reach an agreement" with the UK.

"Given the additional assurances provided by the EU in December, January and yesterday, it is difficult to see what more we can do. If there is a solution to the current impasse it can only be found in London," Tusk said in a statement, supplied by his spokesman.

"With only 17 days left to 29 March, today's vote has significantly increased the likelihood of a 'no-deal' Brexit. We will continue our no-deal preparations and ensure that we will be ready if such a scenario arises."
