LONDON (AP) — British Prime Minister Theresa May faced renewed pressure today from lawmakers in her Conservative Party to abandon efforts to seek a Brexit compromise deal with the opposition Labour Party.

After several weeks of fruitless negotiations, senior Conservative and Labour lawmakers resumed discussions in what appears to be one final push to reach an agreement.

The talks have been given new urgency by last week’s local elections, which saw the Conservatives hammered and Labour also lose ground as voters expressed anger at the country’s Brexit impasse.
