BBC News with Sue Montgomery. The British Prime Minister Theresa May says her cabinet has agreed to collective position on future relations with the European Union after a marathon day of talks. The deal proposes continued free trade between Britain and the EU and shared rules on goods, but not on services. It also says free movement of people from the EU as it currently stands will end. Mrs. May welcomed the consensus. This is a further step, an important further step, in our negotiations with the European Union.

But this is good, we have come today, following our detailed discussions, to a positive future for the UK. This will deliver prosperity and security for all our people.
