Labour's shadow foreign secretary will promise to forge a new security pact between the UK and the European Union if the party wins the next election.

David Lammy will later set out five proposals the party said would help Britain "thrive" on the world stage.

The proposals involves working more closely with the EU on cyber threats, energy security and organised crime.

Mr Lammy will outline how the party will reset UK foreign policy and create a "Britain Reconnected".

Labour say their proposals will improve UK prosperity by resolving the Northern Ireland protocol negotiations, tackling climate change and rebuilding what the shadow foreign secretary will says is Britain's "tarnished" international reputation.

The shadow foreign secretary will also promise to ease UK-EU friction on food and medical goods, strengthen the recognition of professional standards, and restore co-operation on science and research - with regular summits of the two sides to discuss commons issues.
