British cross-party Brexit talks have collapsed after Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn told Prime Minister Theresa May they had “gone as far as they can”.

Mr Corbyn pulled the plug on the negotiations, telling Mrs May “we have been unable to bridge important policy gaps between us”.

Mr Corbyn also said the prospect of a change in Tory leadership meant the government was becoming “ever more unstable and its authority eroded” and Labour could not be confident in any cross-party agreement being delivered.

Mrs May will set out the timetable for her departure in early June after a crucial Commons vote on the Withdrawal Agreement Bill.
