    What's happened?

    Since the 2016 vote, negotiations have been taking place between the UK and the other EU countries. Those discussions centred on the divorce deal, which sets out exactly how the UK leaves – not what will happen afterwards. This deal is known as the withdrawal agreement.


    Former PM Theresa May reopened talks with the EU in an attempt to make changes to her Brexit deal. This comes after MPs put forward some suggestions to try and change the direction of Brexit.
