May 'struggling to see any Brexit upside', says ex-aide

Nick Timothy, who was Theresa May's right-hand man in her first year in office, says the prime minister and other ministers are treating Brexit as a "damage limitation exercise".

He tells the BBC's Political Editor Laura Kuenssberg that while he respects Mrs May, he thinks she is "struggling to see any economic upside" from leaving the EU.

The clip is from forthcoming BBC Two documentary Inside the Brexit Storm.
