On the eve of a general election she had initially been expected to win handily, Prime Minister Theresa May was fighting yesterday to convince voters she can provide the "strong and stable" leadership needed to negotiate Britain's exit from the European Union. Formal talks are due to start on June 19.
Brexit has receded into the background since the terrorist attacks in Manchester and London left 22 and eight people dead, respectively.
This provided ammunition for opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to attack Mrs May, who had slashed police numbers when she was home secretary.
It prompted the Prime Minister to pledge on Tuesday that she will tear up human rights legislation to combat terrorism.
