My deal or no Brexit, says May

Prime Minister Theresa May has warned that no Brexit at all is the most likely outcome if MPs reject her withdrawal deal today, as she sought to persuade MPs to back her.

Meanwhile, President of the European Commission, Jean Claude Juncker, and Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, sent a letter offering assurances over the temporary nature of the Irish backstop.
