LONDON (Reuters) - Big areas remain unresolved in Britain’s negotiations with the European Union, a senior British negotiating source said on Friday, flagging fisheries as one of the outstanding issues.

“Whilst we are beginning to get discussions of substance of some issues, big important areas remain unresolved,” the source said.

“Despite their insistence to the contrary, on fisheries their position is still a long a way from the huge change we need to get an agreement.”
