Brexit Secretary David Davis admits no-deal Brexit is possible

Brexit Secretary David Davis has admitted Britain could leave the European Union without a deal.

Davis said reaching a deal with the European Union was the "most likely and best outcome" but "it is possible we will not get a deal".

Davis made the comments at a conference in London, after Theresa May said she had the backing of several Cabinet ministers to increase the so-called divorce bill from £20 billion to £38 billion. 

It is thought the Prime Minister will make the offer to the European Union later this week, however the money will not be paid unless the EU moves on to the next stage of Brexit talks.

May is set to meet  Donald Tusk in Brussels on Friday (November 24). 

MP Robert Halfon criticised the move when talking to Julia Hartley-Brewer this morning, likening May and her ministers to the 'Loadsamoney' character created by Harry Enfield.
