LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May and opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn held talks in parliament on Thursday aimed at finding a way out the Brexit impasse.

May is hoping to reach an agreement with Labour in order to approve her divorce deal, which has been rejected three times by parliament.

“Both sides agreed to continue talks in an effort to make substantive progress towards finding a compromise plan,” a Labour party spokesman said.
