Labour says it'll now back a second EU referendum.

In a significant shift in the party's Brexit policy, leader Jeremy Corbyn says he'll back a motion in Parliament in favour of another public vote - or table his own.

A spokesperson says leader Jeremy Corbyn will put forward or support an amendment in favour of a public vote in the Commons tomorrow.

A statement from Jeremy Corbyn says:

We are committed to also putting forward or supporting an amendment in favour of a public vote to prevent a damaging Tory Brexit being forced on the country.”

The European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said he had a "good, constructive" meeting with the British Prime Minister about Brexit earlier.
