Boris Johnson avoids questions on Duke of York

Mr Johnson, asked if he would encourage the Duke of York to co-operate with US authorities about his knowledge of the activities of Jeffrey Epstein, replied: "Nice try there."

The PM offered no further answer and turned to the first part of the question asked on the second phase of the Brexit talks, saying: "We're off to a flying start, I see absolutely no reason why we should not get it done in the time available."
