(Reuters) – The European Union is preparing to back a compromise proposal on the Irish border to resolve the last major hurdle in Brexit negotiations, the Times of London reported on Monday.

Senior EU figures have indicated that they are prepared to offer Prime Minister Theresa May an “independent mechanism” by which Britain could end a temporary customs arrangement with the bloc, the Times reported, without citing sources.
