In Luxembourg where British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been facing criticism from protesters and his counterpart Xavier Bettel.

After lunch with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker , the British Prime Minister held Brexit talks with Mr Bettel -- then skipped out of a press conference they were both supposed to attend.

As our political editor Darren McCaffrey reports neither the public or the host were happy about Mr. Johnson's absence.
