Brexit LIVE: Theresa May invites rebel Tory MPs for talks as Downing Street rules out general election

Theresa May has invited rebel Tory MPs into the heart of her government as she tries to thrash out changes to her Brexit deal.

Hardline Brexiteers from the European Research Group, such as Steve Baker, and Remain-supporting former ministers, including Nicky Morgan, will form the “Alternative Arrangements Working Group” (AWWG) as the Prime Minister seeks a way out of the ongoing constitutional crisis.

The AWWG will meet at the Cabinet Office in Whitehall today, with meetings also scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday.

It came as Downing Street quashed talk of a June general election, following reports in Sunday newspapers.
