The Green Party has launched its General Election manifesto with a pledge to hold a second referendum on any final Brexit deal.

The party, which is standing seven candidates in the 8 June poll, is also calling for a reform of public services and marriage equality.

Party leader Steven Agnew insists any deal agreed with Europe must be approved by the public.

He said: “The option to remain in the European Union must be left on the table.

"This would strengthen the hand of the UK negotiating team as well as allowing us to make an informed decision once the full facts on Brexit are available."
