 British Prime Minister Theresa May scored a key success in clinching a Brexit agreement with Brussels today but faced an immediate backlash from hardliners at home for making compromises.

"It's not Brexit," Nigel Farage, the former leader of the UK Independence Party and a major driving force behind last year's Brexit referendum, told BBC radio.

European countries affected by the end of a deal allowing them to fish close to Britain's coastline need an accord to allow them access after Brexit, France said on Monday.

Britain is to withdraw from a 50-year-old agreement allowing vessels from five European countries -- Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland and the Netherlands -- to fish within an area that is six miles (10 kilometres) off the UK's coast.
