Jeremy Corbyn has insisted that Labour will not block the planned departure from the European Union.

There has been talk that the party may vote against invoking Article 50 if it can not get certain guarantees about Britain's exit from the bloc.

But the Labour leader maintained that Brexit would be happening.

"We respect the referendum. We voted for the referendum. The result was the result we got", he told the Andrew Marr Show.

"It wasn't the one we wanted, but we have to respect it. Therefore there is going to be a departure from the European Union".
