UK MPs have voted to tell PM Theresa May to ask the EU to delay Brexit by 412 voted to 202.

Mrs May says this could mean a delay of three months before the UK quits.

However the EU – all other 27 states –  will have to agree to any extension to article 50.

The motion that was passed says that if a Brexit plan is agreed by Parliament by  March 20 the delay will be until June 30 – if not it would probably involve a longer period.

That would mean the UK taking part in upcoming European elections.
