Just over a year after a small majority voted for Britain to leave the EU, new realities are dawning on both the in and the out camps.

One in three children aged between six and nine in Europe is either overweight or obese and the epidemic is threatening to bankrupt health services.

Twenty-four different nationalities among dead and injured in "jihadist" van attack on model of previous ones in France, Germany, and UK.

Macedonia's left-wing-led parliament has sacked the country's top prosecutor, Marko Zvrlevski, over his handling of an investigation into a major wiretapping scandal. On Thursday, all 64 lawmakers from the governing coalition voted for the dismissal, while the conservative opposition walked out before the vote. More than 90 people, including former senior officials, have been charged in connection with the 2-year-old wiretap scandal, which brought down the previous government.

European Central Bank (ECB) governors are concerned that a further hike in the value of the euro, making exports less attractive and imports cheaper, could derail the economic region’s recovery.

Some concerns were also voiced about "policy uncertainty in the United States".

Irish finance minister Paschal Donohoe told Germany's Frankfurter Allgemeine (FAZ) newspaper that the European Commission's demand for Dublin to collect up to €13bn in back taxes from Apple was unjustified.

UK premier Theresa May's ally in Northern Ireland, the unionist DUP, welcomed a position paper on managing the Irish border after Brexit as a "constructive step", while Sinn Fein called it "delusional". Sinn Fein's leader, Michelle O'Neill, said Britain's government cannot deliver on preventing the return of a hard border, noting "it will be the other European member states, who clearly think and believe we need to see customs controls".

There are signs of EU economic recovery, with Eurostat reporting 2.2% euro-area growth and 2.3% growth in the EU-28 over the second quarter of 2017, up from last year's 0.6%. Central/Eastern Europe was growing fastest: Romania (5.7%), Latvia (4.8%), Czech Republic (4.5%) and Poland (4.4%). The weakest growth was in Belgium (1.4%), Italy (1.5%), Finland and UK (1.7%), and France (1.8%). Data for seven EU states was not available.
