Tories must unite behind new Brexit plan, says Steve Baker

Steve Baker tells the BBC that the Conservative Party risks splitting unless MPs can unite around a new Brexit plan.

The former minister says at least 80 MPs could vote against Theresa May's Chequers proposal for future relations with the EU and the PM needs to back a looser free trade arrangement.

But he insists this is not a plan to topple the prime minister and install a different leader.
