Theresa May has suffered a heavy defeat after MPs rejected her Brexit deal in a historic vote.

432 MPs voted against it while 202 voted for it - a majority of 230.

Jeremy Corbyn described the result as a "catastrophic" for the government.

The Labour leader announced he was tabling a motion of no confidence in the government.

It will be debated by MPs tomorrow.

- What happens now Jeremy Corbyn has called a vote of no confidence in the government?

The 230-vote margin of defeat was by far the worst suffered by any Government in a meaningful division since at least the First World War.

In a statement immediately after her drubbing, Mrs May said: "The House has spoken and this Government will listen."

She offered cross-party talks with MPs across the House to determine a way forward.
