New Delhi : British Prime Minister Theresa May is likely to face anther legal challenge over Britain’s planned exit from the European Union which may upset her plan of leaving the 28-nation bloc.

According to a latest report, campaigners are now taking it to the high court in an effort to keep Britain in the single market.

The claimants will seek a judicial review in an attempt to give Britain's MPs a new power of veto over the terms on which Britain leaves the EU, 'The Sunday Times' reports.

The two claimants are Peter Wilding, the chairman of pressure group British Influence credited with coining the term Brexit and remain voter; and Adrian Yalland, a Conservative lobbyist who voted to leave.

"This is not stopping Brexit, this is shaping it. The country demands a win-win, smart Brexit; not a lose-lose ideological hard Brexit which will damage the UK, damage Europe and for which there is no need and no mandate," Wilding told the newspaper.

The new case follows the same legal path being used in the case that concluded its hearing in the Supreme Court last week.
