Michael Roth, Germany's deputy foreign minister, said as he arrived at a European Union meeting in Luxembourg on Tuesday that "so far absolutely nothing has changed" and, "We are in a very, very frustrating situation here."

May has asked for a new delay until June 30. The bloc's leaders are due to meet on Wednesday to consider the request.

May is visiting Berlin and Paris later on Tuesday.

Roth said: "Within the European Union, there isn't an endless readiness to keep talking about delays so long as there is no substantial progress on the British side."
