LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May’s government has made substantive moves in Brexit talks with the opposition Labour Party, The Times newspaper reported, citing unidentified Labour sources.

Labour sources were quoted as saying that the government appeared to have shifted its position on Labour’s key demands around a closer customs union with the European Union after Brexit.

May’s de-facto deputy, David Lidington, said the meeting was “productive” and “positive”. The talks are now expected to run into next week, The Times said.
