UK Cabinet ministers are exploring 'Plan B' options for if/when May loses next week's Brexit vote, according to Bloomberg.

The report cites people familiar with the thinking of ministers. They also said that May could seek Jeremy Corbyn's help on securing the vote.

"A group of mainly pro-European ministers want May to invite the opposition Labour party leader to meet her for negotiations in the hope of agreeing a joint plan, according to people familiar with the matter," the report says.

The report cites six Cabinet ministers and two other ministers who are urging her to talk to Labour and say she should make an approach personally.

This report underscores earlier talk and highlights the risks for the pound into the weekend.
