It appears a second referendum or general election will be needed to break the Brexit deadlock, the Shadow Attonery General has told LBC.

Shami Chakrabarti said it is “looking like at some point” another vote on Brexit would be needed.

The Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry is calling for a second referendum on any deal struck between the two.

Last night MPs voted to extend Article 50 again to stop no deal by a majority of one.
