LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May has reached a deal with pro-EU MPs over the wording of a compromise on the government’s Brexit legislation, a source familiar with the negotiations said on Thursday.

May and the pro-EU rebels were meeting before a 1600 GMT deadline to thrash out details of a compromise on the extent to which parliament can influence the exit negotiations. Ministers offered to find a compromise on Tuesday to avoid a defeat in parliament.
