MPs from the Tory party are warning Theresa May they will resist any attempt by the prime minister to call a snap general election.

MPs warned they could face an electoral disaster if she goes to the country early.

Downing Street aides have signalled the prime minister will make another last-ditch attempt to get her deal through the Commons after it was voted down for the third time on Friday.

After the vote, Mrs May said there would be “grave” implications and, in a hint at a general election, warned they were “reaching the limits of this process in this House”.
