The United Kingdom and New Zealand have signed a mutual recognition agreement, where the UK has pledged trade continuity following Brexit. The Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern met with the British Prime Minister Theresa May a few hours ago, and said the agreement will bring confidence to New Zealand businesses. The meeting was just hours before Mrs May made a statement in the UK parliament about her Plan B for Brexit. Our correspondent Natalie Powell is in London. She talks to Susie Ferguson.
