    British Prime Minister Theresa May is under pressure to soften her approach on Brexit after last Thursday's election in which her rival Jeremy Corbyn won many more votes than expected.

     

    Opposition politicians, and some within her own Conservative Party, say she no longer has a mandate for a so-called hard Brexit which would mean leaving the single market and customs union.

     

    Talks with the EU about Britain's exit from the bloc are due to start next week.
