But even as May insisted she could salvage her unpopular European Union divorce deal, pressure was mounting for dramatic action - a new referendum or a vote among lawmakers - to find a way out of Britain's Brexit impasse.

At the same time, May's Chief of Staff Gavin Barwell has said that holding a second referendum was "the only way forward". She said the vote would be held the following week.
