MPs have voted by 312 to 308 to reject leaving the EU without a withdrawal agreement.
It is not a legally-binding decision – and it does not rule out the UK leaving the European Union.
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.
They now will vote on another amendment to tonight’s motion which calls for a delay of Brexit until May 22, for further preparations to take place. It also acknowledges a definitive departure from the EU in 2021.
