Jeremy Corbyn agrees to prioritise cross-party legislation to stop no-deal Brexit

Cross-party talks led by Labour's Jeremy Corbyn have resulted in a co-ordinated effort to thwart Prime Minister Boris Johnson's plans for a no-deal Brexit.

The Prime Minister has repeatedly promised that the UK will leave the European Union on October 31, with or without a deal.

But Mr Johnson has been warned he will face a parliamentary battle as opposition leaders united around a plan to stop a no-deal Brexit.

The leaders agreed to prioritise a legislative approach, although a joint statement said they also considered the possibility of a confidence motion.

The focus on legislation suggests Mr Corbyn will not immediately push ahead with a move to oust Mr Johnson in a vote of no confidence.
