The German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier has asked for Poland's forgiveness as an event marking the eightieth anniversary of the start of the Second World War. He's been speaking in the Polish town of Wielun, which was the first to suffer aerial bombardment during the conflict. As German Federal President, I want to assure you we will not forget. We want to and we will remember and we accept the responsibility our history gives us. I bow my head before the victims of the attack on Wielun. I bow my head before the Polish victims of Germany's tyranny. And I ask for forgiveness. Further events will take place in the capital Warsaw later in the day.

The EU's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier says the UK has come to a moment of truth on how it will leave the bloc. He again rejected Boris Johnson's demand to remove the Irish backstop, the policy intended to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland. Jessica Parker reports. Boris Johnson has claimed there's been some movement from Brussels as he attempts to broker a new deal and remove the Irish backstop, which he calls anti-democratic. But writing in the Sunday Telegraph, Michel Barnier appears to push back. He says that he is ready to explore all avenues so long as they're compatible with the existing withdrawal agreement. He added that he wasn't optimistic about avoiding no-deal and that's an outcome that a cross-party group of MPs are set to try and legislate against this week.
