Michel Barnier arrives in London for do-or-die Brexit talks.

MICHEL Barnier arrived in the UK late on Friday evening to resume face-to-face trade talks as Boris Johnson admits there are still roadblocks in negations.

After setting foot on British soil, the EU chief negotiator said he would work with "patience and determination" to reach a deal.

This comes as Boris Johnson has admitted "substantial differences" are still blocking hopes of a UK-EU trade deal.

Last week, the EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier had to self isolate after a colleague tested positive for Covid, suspending all in-person negotiations.

However, there are renewed hopes for in-person talks after one senior EU figure suggested to the BBC that the talks could be brief.

The news comes as the EU has threatened to PULL OUT of post-Brexit trade talks while Dublin says it is "imperative" for everyone involved that a deal is agreed.

Talks remain stalled over the thorny issues of fishing and state aid as the clock ticks down to the end of the transition period on December 31.

EU Commission president Ursula von der Leyen says the bloc is prepared for the UK to leave without a trade deal.
