Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez has warned Theresa May that if she wants to extend the deadline for Brexit, she needs to have a clear plan.
“You can’t go forward by going around in circles Sánchez said.
He stressed that Mrs May’s deal is the ‘best possible’ and the ‘only viable option’ if the UK wants to leave the European Union but stressed that Spain will ‘always provide constructive solutions’ to promote ‘an orderly exit’.
If the deal, which has been voted down twice, does not get through Parliament within the next nine days, the UK wants an extension to Article 50 so as to avoid crashing out without a deal, which experts say would be disastrous for Britain and cause financial loss to its trading partners in the EU.
Spain will ‘listen to the UK’s proposals’, says Sánchez, but has made it clear that if Mrs May wants an extension, she ‘needs to make it clear what it is for and for how long’.
A British woman has been arrested on suspicion of strangling a homeless Romanian man to death.
The 50-year-old suspect, who lives on Gran Canaria, was detained there along with a 43-year-old Spaniard yesterday morning.

The Guardia Civil have arrested 21 people for cultivating and distributing narcotics under a network of cannabis associations on the Costa Blanca, including two British ‘ring-leaders’.
The unnamed British couple distributed marijuana and hashish through four cannabis associations in Torrevieja, which reportedly had a combined membership of 6,000.
The Guardia also raided seven addresses in the city, including two private homes, and found €216,000 worth of narcotics, including three plantations of marijuana.
Among the haul were cannabis derivatives, including cream chocolate spread, muffins, jelly beans, jams, lollipops, biscuits and honey.
The authorities have refused bail for the British couple as the alleged ring-leaders of the organisation, who will await charges of drug trafficking and criminal organisation.
