It’s been nine months since the United Kingdom voted in a narrow majority to leave the European Union. Today, British Prime Minister Theresa May formally triggered Brexit by invoking Article 50 of the EU’s Lisbon Treaty. Reporter Kyle Mackie was at the EU headquarters today and filed this report from Brussels.


Americans are bitterly divided over many policies of the new Trump administration, but one issue where divisiveness is nothing new is abortion.

Kyle Mackie has the story in Englewood.
