Britain's opposition Labour Party is set to vote against any Brexit deal reached by Prime Minister Theresa May, a senior Labour MP has told the Financial Times.

Emily Thornberry, Labour's Foreign Secretary in waiting, told the FT that a workable deal was "just not going to happen" under Ms May.

She said the lack of a viable exit from the European Union will force Ms May from office before Christmas.

Ms Thornberry said there would need to be a national election within months given the likelihood that the Prime Minister would be defeated on the crucial vote on any Brexit deal.
