On the day that the UK was due to leave the EU, there has instead been more delay and continued division over Brexit.
Here's what today has meant for the Brexit process:
- MPs voted by 286 to 344 to reject the government’s withdrawal agreement for a third time
- It means the UK has now also missed a deadline to leave the EU with a deal by 22 May
- Thousands of Leave supporters filled Parliament Square to call for Parliament to protest against the delay to Brexit
- Prime Minister Theresa May has until 12 April to seek an extension to avoid leaving the EU without a deal
- She said it was now "almost certain" that the UK would have to take part in European elections and that we may have "reached the limits" of what Parliament can achieve
- The EU Council will hold an emergency summit on 10 April to consider any request for an extension
