Theresa May has asked the EU for "one more push" to get her Brexit deal through Parliament and warned that, if it fails, "we may never leave at all", APAreports citing BBC.

The prime minister said the UK had tabled "serious" proposals to resolve the deadlock over the Irish backstop.

Warning of a "moment of crisis" if the deal was rejected again, the PM told EU leaders: "Let's get it done."

The EU said it would give "legal force" to assurances already made that the UK could not be stuck in a customs union.

Setting out the EU's position on Twitter, chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said it was "not interested in the blame game" and talks would continue over the weekend.
