The DUP crushed Theresa May's hopes of saving her Brexit deal tonight as they rejected her offer to resign in return for rebel votes.

DUP leader Arlene Foster said her party still could not support the deal because it 'poses a threat to the integrity of the UK'. A party statement said 'we will not be supporting the Government if they table a fresh meaningful vote' - with Westminster leader Nigel Dodds vowing to vote No.

The hammer blow came hours after Mrs May sensationally promised to quit Downing Street in return for Tory Brexiteer rebels passing her deal as she admitted her time as Prime Minister was almost over.
