"I will not overturn the result of the referendum nor will I break up my country", May told broadcasters in Downing Street.

"Anything which fails to respect the referendum or which effectively divides our country in two would be a bad deal and I have always said no deal is better than a bad deal".

With a defiant tone, May concluded by saying: "We need serious engagement on resolving the two big problems in the negotiations and we stand ready".
