60 secs Minimum - 8 mins Maximum Read
UK Prime Minister, Theresa May is to trigger Article 50 today and as a

result kick-start the Brexit process that will see Britain leave the

European Union in two years' time.



The UK voted to withdraw from the EU in a hotly contested and

controversial referendum in June 2016 but formal "divorce" proceedings

cannot begin until the Prime Minister officially informs Europe that

the government is triggering Article 50.



That is expected to happen at 1.30 p.m.

Wednesday (7.30 a.m ET) in Brussels, when Tim Barrow, the UK's

permanent representative to the EU, delivers a letter of notification

to European Council President Donald Tusk.
