Theresa May in the Commons

Theresa May addressing the House of Commons yesterday

Prime Minister braced for fresh Brexit defeat

It might be Valentine's Day, but there will be no love lost between the Prime Minister and Tory Eurosceptics today. Theresa May is facing the prospect of a fresh Brexit rebellion from hardline Conservative MPs. But it is likely to be less of the predicted massacre and more of a revolt. Mrs May is braced for another damaging defeat in a key Commons vote on her EU withdrawal stance. The result will be purely symbolic, but a loss would be a setback as she tries to persuade Brussels to change the Brexit deal - just 43 days before Britain is due to leave the EU. Follow all of today's Commons action in our liveblog.

Eurosceptics accuse Mrs May of effectively ruling out a no-deal Brexit. The European Research Group of Conservative Brexiteers describe her position as "madness". But what exactly would a no-deal Brexit mean for Britain - and how would it affect daily life? Peter Foster does his best to explain.
