Brexit Bill backed by overwhelming majority of MPs

The Government's Brexit Bill has been given the go ahead by parliament after two days of intense debate, by a majority of 384.

The passing of the bill gives Prime Minister Theresa May permission to trigger Article 50 and start formal Brexit talks.

Arch-Brexiteer John Redwood has delivered an impassioned defence of Brexit in the Commons debate, saying that voting through the Bill was about bringing power back to Britain's parliament.

Ignoring calls to give way he thundered: "What is it about freedom they don't like?"

And closing his speech: "The once and future sovereign parliament of the UK - vote to make it sovereign again."
