(AFP) - British Prime Minister Theresa May was travelling to Brussels on Friday to meet European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker, officials said, amid hopes of a breakthrough in Brexit negotiations.

"The Prime Minister is travelling to Brussels for further meetings on the Brexit negotiations," May's Downing Street office said in a statement.

May will be travelling with Brexit Minister David Davis and the two will meet Juncker and the EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier "shortly before 7am Brussels time" (0600 GMT), the statement said.

EU, British and Irish negotiators have been working through the night in a bid to conclude an agreement, with the European Commission saying some "progress" had been made.
