In the June 2016 referendum, 17.4 million voters, or 51.9pc, backed leaving the European Union while 16.1 million, or 48.1pc, backed staying.

"I know many are reflecting hard about the deal that's looming and how they will respond to it, but it's obviously for each of them to work out how best to respond", he told BBC Radio.

"I've done so, if others feel that it's right for them to do so, good on them".

DUP leader Arlene Foster said the Prime Minister appeared "wedded to the idea of a border down the Irish Sea" despite Downing Street's repeated assurances to the contrary.
