The fate of migrant workers in Britain, including around a million Poles, hangs in the balance as intense talks between the EU and UK lasted through the night with no deal yet reached.

British Prime Minister David Cameron was reported as saying that there was “real hard work to do overnight” in talks with European Council President Donald Tusk, among others.
Cameron on Thursday night pushed for a 13-year ban on EU migrants claiming in-work benefits in the UK.
Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydło tweeted: “Poland's standpoint at the Brussels summit is clear. We want an agreement, but not at any price”.
The talks will continue on Friday, and could extend to the weekend. (rg/pk)
