Michael Gove sets out case for leaving EU

The Justice Secretary Michael Gove has outlined how he believes the UK's economy could thrive outside the EU.

One of the leading figures in the Vote Leave group, Mr Gove suggests the UK could be part of what is known as the European Free Trade Zone and strike a unique deal which would allow Britain to trade with Europe but not abide by EU laws, such as the free movement of people.

Those arguing to remain in the EU claim Mr Gove is labouring under a serious misunderstanding of the way the European Union works.

Political editor Laura Kuenssberg has the details.
