British Prime Minister David Cameron has hosted German Chancellor Angela Merkel for talks at his country retreat Chequers.
Dominating the low-profile meeting were the influx of migrants into Europe, the threat from ISIL and the UK’s future in the EU.
More than half a million people have fled to Europe this year prompting bitter disputes about how the EU member states should share out their responsibility.
Cameron has promised to hold a referendum on his country’s membership of the EU by the end of 2017.
The two leaders concluded that the UK and Germany should work even more closely together
