David Davis´s newly created Department for Exiting the EU now has around 700 staff

Just under a quarter of people (24%) are not happy with how the government is handling Brexit while 32% of people said they didn't know.

Vice President Pence contests the charge that he is in favour of conversion therapy to change someone's sexual orientation.

Speaking from the USA, where he is conducting a series of St Patrick's Day engagements, the Taoiseach said: "No, it is not a solution that we envisage". "This is where the LGBT movement began, the first place where gay people fought back".
