A junior Wales office minister has quit over the prime minister's decision to turn to Jeremy Corbyn to try to get a Brexit deal through Parliament.

Nigel Adams said the decision was a "grave error" and the UK would now "end in a customs union" with the EU.

Mr Adams, who was also a government whip, said he believed the UK would having coped with a "managed no-deal".

He became the fourth Wales minister to have the job within 1

2 months when he took up the role last November.

Theresa May is to meet Mr. Corbyn later to see if they can formulate a deal both sides in Parliament can agree to.

She said that it was not possible to agree, they could choose a series of options to put to the House of Commons.

Wales' First Minister Mark Drakeford will also keep talking with her at Westminster on Wednesday.

He blamed hard Brexiteers in the European Research Group of Conservative MPs who refused to ba ck Mrs May's deal

Mr Corbyn says he wants a customs union and workers' rights to be priorities and that he recognizes his own "responsibility" to break the deadlock.

It comes after the prime minister had more than seven hours of talks with her cabinet on Tuesday.
