Theresa May's trip to Japan isn't going to plan and she hasn't even arrived yet.

Her trade hopes were already in doubt - and now Theresa May's flying into the eye of the storm after North Korea's missile launch.

Theresa May's big trip to Japan risks being blown off course before it even starts after an alarming new threat from North Korea.
The Prime Minister jets off within hours for her long-planned first visit to the country's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

But security talks risk overshadowing her hopes to discuss trade after North Korea fired a ballistic missile over the Japanese island of Hokkaido.

Even before the "reckless" missile launch, reports were claiming Japan was unwilling to rush into trade talks with Britain.

Japanese officials told the Financial Times their priority was negotiating a yet-to-be-completed deal with the EU.

One official claimed the UK was being "quite aggressive" in pushing Japan to commit to a future trade deal, and warned: "I don't think there will be substantial progress."
