An open letter to the new Prime Minister from leaders of seven Christian denominations, including the Methodist Church of Great Britain, expresses concerns that failing to agree a deal on Brexit will "hit those held back by poverty very hard indeed". The Church leaders say they have been "compelled" to write to the new Prime Minister because of his position that leaving the European Union without a deal is acceptable.
