The UK is "significantly closer" to delivering on the result of the Brexit vote, Theresa May has told MPs.

The prime minister was speaking before a crunch cabinet meeting where she is seeking her senior ministers' backing for the UK and EU's draft agreement.

She told the Commons it would give the UK control of borders, laws and money - and also protect business and jobs, reports BBC.

But Jeremy Corbyn said the UK would be stuck in an "indefinite half-way house without any real say" over the rules.

Speaking at Prime Minister's Questions, the Labour leader said Mrs May was putting a "false choice" before Parliament between her "botched deal and no deal".
