French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday October 10th warned Britain that Brexit was a "British domestic crisis" and it would have to take responsibility for how it leaves the European Union, AFP has reported.

"Brexit is a British domestic crisis, not a European one," Macron said, adding that what was important now was to finalise negotiations and see if there was "something that I hope could fly."

But he added: "At the very end this is a British responsiblity" on whether it leaves the EU with or without a deal or even cancels the Brexit process outright.
