Downing Street this week laughed off EU plans, which would have handed British fishermen a boost of up to 18 percent of catch quotas in our waters, before it even landed in London. Brexit negotiations have been deadlocked for months over the issue of fishing rights with talks coming down to the wire ahead of the transition deadline of December 31.

But the UK failed to bow to pressure despite the EU’s chief negotiator climbdown, warning Brussels would have to move further before an agreement is possible.

Mr Barnier travelled to London on Friday in a last-ditch attempt to avoid a tumultuous finale to Brexit talks, where in-person negotiations with Lord David Frost will resume in the city today.

Time is tight to secure a free trade deal between the two sides, with the transition period set to end in just over a month.

With just five weeks left until the UK finally exits the EU's orbit on December 31, both sides are calling on the other to compromise on the three main issues of contention - fishing, state aid and how to resolve any future disputes.

Under the EU’s fishing plan, British fishermen would have seen an increase of their catch quotas between 15 and 18 percent for certain species.

But a UK source close to the talks said the climbdown wasn’t enough, telling Express.co.uk: “It’s derisory, there’s nothing more to say about it”.
