MPs have decided to delay a vote on Boris Johnson new Brexit deal - in a historic sitting of Parliament which has been dubbed "Super Saturday."

Boris Johnson has lost the Letwin Amendment vote 322 to 306, meaning MPs backed a move to delay the Prime Minister's Brexit deal until legislation is passed.

It means the Prime Minister is now likely to be forced to request a further extension to the Brexit deadline.
