Bosses round on ministers after May defeat

By Mark Kleinman, City editor
Executives from some of the biggest companies operating in the UK rounded on cabinet ministers on Tuesday night after they refused to rule out a no-deal Brexit? in the wake of Theresa May's crushing Commons defeat.
Sky News has learnt that the bosses of companies including construction giant Balfour Beatty, Tesco and Amazon told a trio of ministers - including the chancellor, Philip Hammond - in a hastily convened conference call - that protracted Brexit uncertainty was damaging Britain's ‎economy.
During the call, which lasted nearly an hour, Mr Hammond, the Brexit secretary and business secretary were repeatedly asked for reassurance about the likelihood of a no-deal departure from the EU.
