EU's Tusk tells UK: "Don't waste Brexit overtime"

BRUSSELS, April 11 (Reuters) - European Council President Donald Tusk told Britain on Thursday not to waste the extra time to sort out Brexit after the EU agreed a second delay to London’s departure until Oct.31.

“Please don’t waste this time,” Tusk told a news conference after eight hours of EU leaders’ talks on the matter.

He said Britain still had all the options on Brexit available during the extension, from approving the stalled divorce deal, to changing its leave strategy to cancelling the departure altogether. (Reporting by Gabriela Baczynska and Alastair Macdonald; Editing by Sandra Maler)
