Britain's main opposition party has announced a major policy shift on Brexit.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn says he now backs the UK staying in a permanent customs union with the EU, saying it Is necessary to protect trade and avoid a hard border with Ireland.

Pro-European MPs have welcomed the move, but the government says it Is a cynical attempt to frustrate the UK's withdrawal from the EU.
