On Wednesday the talks in Brussels will see senior officials - the UK's Olly Robbins and the EU's Sabine Weyand - consider progress on the thorny issue of the Northern Irish border.

They will also discuss the future relationship between the UK and EU after Brexit.

A further round of meetings is scheduled for the week starting April 30.
