Prime Minister David Cameron is trying to renegotiate the terms of Britain's membership to the EU, ahead of the referendum which will take place before the end of 2017.

After having lunch with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, Cameron told the BBC: "There is now a proposal on the table. It is not good enough. It needs more work. But we are making progress". He was referring to the EU's proposed "emergency brake" to curb European migration to Britain.

His next key meeting will be with European Council president, Donald Tusk, in Downing Street on Sunday.
