UK Prime Minister Theresa May is looking to make changes to the Irish backstop, but EU leaders are saying the deal already made is the only deal on offer.

Theresa May will demand that the Brexit deal she sealed with Brussels is reopened in order to renegotiate key elements which Conservative MPs have refused to accept.

The prime minister will say that the withdrawal agreement must be revisited and the ‘Irish backstop’ changed, warning the EU that a failure to do so will mean the deal is blocked by the commons.
