Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Cable, who is against Brexit, told BBC Breakfast: "We are still back with the problem that the government has a proposal that we can't get through Parliament and we have got to try and break that gridlock".
May added: "That must start here in Westminster with politicians on all sides coming together to act in the national interest".

Anger over the backstop among Tory backbenchers and their Democratic Unionist Party allies was the main obstacle to Mrs May getting her Brexit deal through the House of Commons earlier this week.
