May told voters on Thrusday that Brexit offers Britons a chance to throw off the "shackles" of the European Union (EU) and forge a brighter future for Britain.

She warned that putting Corbyn in charge of the upcoming delicate negotiations with EU leaders would be a disaster because he "doesn't have a plan" and "doesn't believe in Britain."

Corbyn's party has trailed badly in the polls for most of the brief campaign season but has been gaining ground in recent surveys. The vote is on 8 June.

He told a rally that May's Conservative Party risks "crashing out" of the EU without a trade deal.
