Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn face Brexit backlash
Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn are both facing a backlash from their MPs and councillors after Brexit chaos delivered a disappointing local election showing for the main parties.

Brexiteers pointed the finger of blame at Ms May over her failure to deliver on Brexit, with one senior figure saying she should stand down as voters think she has "lost the plot".

The Labour leadership also faced angry recriminations over its performance at the ballot box, with different Brexit factions arguing it has paid the price for sitting on the fence.

Meanwhile, the Liberal Democrats were triumphant over their best result since the Iraq War in 2003, as smaller parties appeared to capitalise on the frustration felt by voters.

"It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
