Leader of the Liberal Democrats Tim Farron believes the British public should be given a second Brexit referendum, this time on the terms of the deal negotiated with Brussels.

Mr Farron told James Whale that, when the UK´s Brexit negotiators have concluded their discussions with their EU counterparts, the deal "should be presented to the British people [and] they should be able to endorse it or reject.

"If they reject it, my argument would be we stay in the European Union."

Mr Farron also talked about the need for a competent opposition to the Conservative Party and the huge gap in the centre of British politics.
