LONDON (Reuters) - Britain is against the EU's desire for the European Court of Justice to oversee the rights of EU citizens living in Britain after the country leaves the bloc, Brexit minister David Davis said on Sunday.

"There will be arguments over fine detail ... like whether the European Court of Justice oversees these rights after we've left," Davis told ITV's Peston on Sunday show.

"We'll have an argument about that ... The simple truth is that we are leaving, we are going to be outside the reach of the European court."
