Jeremy Corbyn has invited the leaders of the UKs other political parties to a meeting to “discuss all tactics” to prevent a no-deal Brexit.
The UK Labour leader also invited senior backbenchers to the meeting.
“The country is heading into a constitutional and political storm,” he wrote. “So it is vital that we meet urgently, before parliament returns.”
“The chaos and dislocation of Boris Johnson's no-deal Brexit is real and threatening, as the Government's leaked Operation Yellowhammer dossier makes crystal clear.
“That's why we must do everything we can to stop it.”
A Labour party spokesperson said Mr Corbyn had “postponed his international commitments to continue his push to block a damaging no-deal Brexit.”

The letter was addressed to the SNP's Westminster leader Ian Blackford, the Lib Dems' Jo Swinson, Plaid Cymru's Liz Saville Roberts, the Green Party's Caroline Lucas and Change UK's Anna Soubry.
Tory Remainers Guto Bebb, Dominic Grieve, Sir Oliver Letwin and Caroline Spelman are also invited, along with independent MP Nick Boles, who quit the party in opposition to the government's Brexit strategy.

The invitation comes after Mr Corbyn floated a plan to call a vote of no confidence in the Government and then lead a “time-limited” administration to extend Article 50 and call an election.
The plan met fierce opposition from the Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson, who said Mr Corbyn was too divisive to lead.
She put forward Tory and Labour backbenchers Ken Clarke and Harriet Harman as alternative options.
The meeting is scheduled for next Tuesday.
