International Trade Secretary in Lincolnshire today

Dr Liam Fox says last night's Lord vote isn't a major hurdle to Brexit process

The Prime Minister insists her plan to trigger Brexit by the end of the month is still on track, despite a defeat in the House of Lords.

Theresa May says she'll fight those Peers who want to change the legislation - some want extra guarantees for EU citizens living in the UK.

The International Trade Secretary and prominent leave campaigner Liam Fox has been in Lincolnshire this afternoon.

He says the Government will seek to overturn last nights Lords vote and the issue will be sorted out during Brexit negotiations.

Dr Fox is visiting export businesses in Boston and Woodhall Spa this afternoon.
