Theresa May has promised MPs a vote on delaying the UK's departure from the EU or ruling out a no-deal Brexit, if they reject her deal next month.

Mrs May is making a statement to MPs on Brexit, amid the threat of a revolt by Remain-supporting ministers.

The prime minister promised MPs a meaningful vote on her Brexit deal by 12 March.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn accused the prime minister of trying to "string" the Brexit process out.

Theresa May tells MPs she does not want to extend Article 50 but MPs will get to vote on a "short, limited" delay to Brexit if they reject her deal and a no-deal exit.

Addressing the Commons, the prime minister set out a new timetable with a second meaningful vote to be held by 12 March, and if that is defeated, MPs will be asked if they support leaving the EU without a deal.

She told MPs the UK will only leave the EU with no deal if "there is explicit consent for that outcome."
