European Council president Donald Tusk has hit out at those who promoted the Leave campaign saying Brexit there is a "special place in hell" for those who promoted Brexit without "even a sketch" of a plan in place.

Mr Tusk took to social media writing: "I've been wondering what that special place in hell looks like, for those who promoted Brexit without even a sketch of a plan how to carry it out safely."

Despite Theresa May giving speeches that said she would do everything in her power to reopen negotiations with the EU, the EU has been consistent in saying that they will not "any new offer" to Theresa May on the Brexit deal.

The Prime Minister began a round of meetings with Northern Ireland's political leaders in her hunt for a breakthrough on the Irish backstop impasse.

Speaking alongside Irish premier Leo Varadkar in Brussels, he backed up that no new offer would be made saying: "The position of the EU27 is clear, as expressed in the documents agreed with the UK Government - that is the Withdrawal Agreement and the Political Declaration.

"The EU27 is not making any new offer."

In a message to Mrs May, Mr Tusk said: "Give us a deliverable guarantee for peace in Northern Ireland and the UK will leave the EU as a trusted friend.

"I hope that the UK Government will present ideas that will both respect this point of view and at the same time command a stable and clear majority in the House of Commons.

"I strongly believe that a common solution is possible and I will do everything in my power to find it."

But he concluded: "By the way, I have been wondering what that special place in hell looks like for those who promoted Brexit without even a sketch of a plan to carry it (out) safely."
