By Alistair Smout LONDON (Reuters) - The gunman who murdered 30 Britons on a Tunisian beach in 2015 had been able to walk nearly two miles on his killing spree before being shot dead by security forces, inquests into the deaths heard on Monday. Evidence critical of local authorities' response and of tour operator TUI is expected to form part of the inquiry, a lawyer said. The inquests, being held collectively at the Royal Courts of Justice, are expected to last around six weeks.
British Prime Minister Theresa May on Tuesday is expected to say she favours a clean break from the European Union, dismissing a "half-in, half-out" Brexit deal with Brussels. In a highly-anticipated speech, May is likely to give further signals that Britain is heading to what analysts call a "hard" Brexit. "Not partial membership of the European Union, associate membership of the European Union, or anything that leaves us half-in, half-out," the prime minister is due to say on Tuesday, according to an extract of her speech circulated in advance to the media by Downing Street.
