LONDON (Reuters) - British business leaders will meet Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday to discuss Brexit and investment, May's spokeswoman said.

The meeting will discuss how the UK can attract more investment and what practical support the government can offer, a source added.

Monday's meeting at May's Downing Street office will be the latest in a series of such meetings with business leaders ahead of Britain's exit from the European Union next year.

Sky News said bosses from Aston Martin, BT, GlaxoSmithKline and Tesco would be among those attending.
