UK secures 'legally binding' changes to Brexit deal ahead of key vote

Frederick FLORIN / AFP

The UK says it has secured "legally binding changes" to the controversial Irish border backstop in the Brexit deal, ahead of Tuesday's crucial vote.

Many British lawmakers had been demanding the backstop be changed or removed before they could vote for a deal reached with Brussels.

Prime Minister Theresa May's government says the changes "improve" the deal that was on offer.
