>> Back from her holidays and back to the business of Brexit. UK Prime Minister Theresa May gathering ministers at her country retreat on Wednesday. The get-together at Chequers will brainstorm exactly how Britain should leave the EU. Those at the meeting may be buoyed by the latest economic data.
00:00:18
Figures out Wednesday show consumer confidence recovering and house prices on the up again. That lends hope to claims the economy can dodge a Brexit slow down. But for European partners and some impatient Brexiteers, the gathering comes not a moment too soon. More than two months since the vote for exit, there's still no clear strategy.
