Boris Johnson's special adviser says MPs will stop getting threats and abuse if they "respect" the EU referendum result.

Dominic Cummings also thinks there are "loopholes" in the law which are meant to delay Britain's departure from the EU.

Meanwhile, the former Prime Minister John Major has attacked Mr Johnson - accusing him of destroying any prospects of a Brexit agreement in parliament.
