It is now "physically impossible" for the UK to leave the European Union on 29 March, the chancellor says.

Axar.az reports citing BBC.

Philip Hammond told the BBC's Andrew Marr that even if MPs agreed the PM's Brexit deal in the coming days, a "short extension" would be needed to pass the necessary legislation.

He said the deal might not go forward for a third Commons vote without more support from the DUP and other MPs.

Theresa May has asked MPs to make an "honourable compromise" on her deal.

Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, she said failure to support it would mean "we will not leave the EU for many months, if ever".

Meanwhile, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has written to MPs across the Commons inviting them for talks to find a cross-party compromise.

He also told Sky's Sophie Ridge that while he "has to see the wording of it", Labour MPs would be told to vote in favour of an amendment calling for another referendum next week.

And he said he could propose another vote of no confidence in the government if the PM's deal was voted down for a third time.
