British Prime Minister Theresa May claims she has agreed with Brussels to create a UK-EU free trade area after Brexit.

She told British MPs the deal would also allow the UK to strike trade deals with other countries from next April, Euronews reports.

But opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn said the post-Brexit agreement was «waffle» without any commitments.

London and Brussels have already agreed a controversial, draft divorce deal for Britain to leave the bloc.

Both this and the post-Brexit agreement will go before EU leaders at a special summit on Sunday.

They will have to give the green light to the plans before all national parliaments get to vote on the deal.

That includes the British parliament, which is deeply divided on the issue. Some have doubted whether the deal will be approved by UK MPs.

Brexiter MPs in May’s ruling Conservative party — upset with the deal she has brought back from Brussels — are trying to get her ousted from government.
