Theresa May will mark the one-year countdown to Brexit with a day-long tour of the UK on Thursday.

She will embark on a Road To Brexit trip to show her determination to deliver an EU exit that works for every community.

On Thursday, Britain will be exactly 12 months away from formally bidding farewell to Brussels.

The Prime Minister will seek to meet workers and families in every nation of the UK.

Officials say her tour will be followed by Cabinet Ministers travelling across the country to explain the benefits of an ‘economic partnership and free trade agreement’ with the EU.

Chancellor Philip Hammond will head to the country’s biggest financial services communities, including London, Leeds, Edinburgh and Bristol.

Michael Gove, the Environment Secretary, will meet fishermen and their families on a coastal tour of the UK and hold talks with environment groups and farming communities.

A Downing Street source said: ‘In 12 months we will be leaving the EU and, as that becomes real for people, it is right that they will be asking what Brexit means to them.

‘That is why Cabinet Ministers will go out across the country, meeting people from all walks of life, listening to their views and explaining how we can secure a new deep and special partnership with the EU that will strengthen our union, bring together communities, grow our economies and keep our people safe.’
