Boris Johnson's new Brexit deal: what’s in it, how it was struck and will it pass parliament

After a week of intense diplomacy with the EU, Boris Johnson brokered a new withdrawal agreement - without the troublesome Irish border backstop but with a contentious customs border in the Irish Sea. He lost support from the DUP, but does it have a chance of passing parliament? We dig into all the details and drama. Presented by Sebastian Payne, with George Parker, Sam Fleming, Robert Shrimsley, Miranda Green, James Blitz and Laura Hughes. Produced by Anna Dedhar and Eoin McSweeney.

Boris Johnson's new Brexit deal: what’s in it, how it was struck and will it pass parliament

Plus, we review a radical Labour party conference, its latest convulsions on Brexit and radical policies on the environment - and look forward to the Tories' gathering next week.
