A Brexit deal has been agreed between UK and EU negotiating teams before a meeting of European leaders in Brussels, Boris Johnson has said.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson tweeted: "We've got a great new deal that takes back control."

But the new deal will still need the approval of both the UK and European parliaments.

Northern Ireland's DUP which props up Mr Johnson's government has announced the party will not back the PM's deal in a crucial vote for MPs on Saturday.
