The number of Britons preparing for Brexit by stockpiling food and medicines is on the increase, new figures suggest.

A Kantar survey has revealed that 9% of UK residents have already stockpiled essentials in advance of the UK's departure from the European Union, currently scheduled for 31 October.

Kantar questioned 1,144 "politically representative" adults in the UK online between 5 and 9 September 2019.

Mr Johnson has warned Tory rebel MPs they will be sacked if they go against the government and try to block a no-deal Brexit in the Commons this week.
