MPs back amendment which could thwart no-deal Brexit

MPs have defeated the Government on an amendment which could thwart efforts by the next prime minister to force through a no-deal Brexit.

The Commons backed the move by 315 votes to 274, majority 41, which could stop the next PM suspending Parliament in order to allow the UK to crash out of the EU.
