It is not a legally-binding decision and it does not rule out the UK leaving the EU.

But it means MPs could now get a vote on delaying Brexit.

That vote would take place on Thursday, and if it is passed and the EU agrees to it the UK will not leave the EU as planned on 29 March.

The government has tabled its own motion on rejecting a no-deal Brexit on 29 March but MPs have now voted to reject no-deal under any circumstances.

MPs are now voting on the government motion.

MPs voted by 374 to 164 to reject a plan to delay the UK's departure from the EU until 22 May, 2019 so that there can be a "managed no-deal" Brexit.
