MPs in the United Kingdom have rejected Prime Minister, Theresa May’s,
EU withdrawal agreement for the third time.

This happened on the day the UK was due to leave the EU – 29 March 2019.

The government lost by 344 votes to 286, a margin of 58.

It means the UK has missed an EU deadline to delay Brexit to 22 May and leave with a deal.

Thousands of Leave supporters gathered outside Parliament to protest against the delay to Brexit, bringing traffic to a standstill.

Mrs May now has until 12 April to seek a longer extension to the negotiation process to avoid a no-deal Brexit on that date.
