Brexit an 'awful complicated mess' says Merkel adviser

Chancellor Angela Merkel's chief of staff has described Brexit negotiations as an "awful complicated mess".

Speaking in an interview with BBC Newsnight, Peter Altmaier said "concrete solutions" are needed.

He was speaking as Angela Merkel was re-elected for a fourth term - but her conservative CDU/CSU bloc had its worst result in almost 70 years.
