Two senior judges have blocked a legal challenge to the government’s strategy for leaving the single market and the European Economic Area.

In a hearing at the high court that lasted less than an hour, Lord Justice Lloyd Jones and Mr Justice Lewis dismissed an application for a fresh judicial review of the Brexit process brought by two sets of claimants.

The judges were due to give reasons for their decision on Friday afternoon.

Campaigners had argued that parliament must legislate separately to trigger article 127, taking UK out of European Economic Area.
