Boris Johnson announces 'great new' Brexit deal has been agreed
Boris Johnson took to Twitter today to reveal a new Brexit deal ahead of the EU Summit in Brussels today.
The first breakthrough in Brexit negotiations appears to have been reached, as the Prime Minister revealed a deal between the UK and EU negotiating teams has been agreed ahead of his meeting with European leaders in Brussels.
The two sides have been working on the legal wording of a deal, but it will still need the approval of both the UK and European parliaments.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson tweeted: "We've got a great new deal that takes back control."
The former London Mayor also urged UK parliament to back the deal on Saturday, where MPs will vote on the new deal.
He said: "Now Parliament should get Brexit done on Saturday so we can move on with other priorities like the cost of living, the NHS, violent crime and our environment."
