Brexit: Talks with Corbyn and short delay - Theresa May's next steps

"I have always been clear that we could make a success of no-deal in the long term but leaving with a deal is the best solution", the Prime Minister said.

He said he has a "responsibility" to talk with her about what to do next, but some people have been critical of Mrs May working with the Labour Party like this.

In a statement released on Tuesday night, a DUP spokesman said: "The Prime Minister's lamentable handling of the negotiations with the European Union means she has failed to deliver a sensible Brexit deal that works for all parts of the United Kingdom".

Prime minister Theresa May is set to meet Jeremy Corbyn.

She said "the ideal outcome" of her talks with Mr Corbyn would be for them to reach an agreement on future relations that she could bring to next week's European Council meeting.

Any revised deal would have to be agreed by Parliament by Wednesday, May 22 to avoid the United Kingdom having to stand in the European elections.

The UK still wants to leave the European Union in an orderly manner, exiting the withdrawal agreement I and will be the only option.

For this to happen, May said, Labour "would need to agree to this too".

"This is a decisive moment in the story of these islands and it requires national unity to deliver the national interests", said May.

The Brexiteer added: "We have far from given up and I think you will find there are lots of deeply frustrated Conservatives whatever way they voted on the withdrawal agreement that frankly will never vote for again".

She revealed her plan less than an hour ago, after an extraordinary all-day cabinet meeting, which started at 9.30 this morning in political mode, with no civil servants in the room.

Dismissing claims of a split in the cabinet, he said: 'I think what we're doing is ensuring everybody is focused on making sure we leave the European Union at the earliest possible point'.

One source said Cabinet ministers were split 14-10 against asking for a long extension to the Brexit process.

The formal meeting stretched right the way into this evening.

He said: "We will meet the Prime Minister".

Former foreign secretary Boris Johnson said: "It is very disappointing that the cabinet has made a decision to entrust the final handling of Brexit to Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party".

If not, it's expected that Members of Parliament (MPs) will vote on a range of options about what to do next.

Responding to the PM's "welcome" statement Ms Cooper said: "We are waiting to find out further details on how the Government's proposed process will work, including how decisions will be taken about the length and objective of an extension, and how indicative votes will work to make sure we don't just end up with no deal a bit later on".
