Brexit chaos: UK MPs reject Theresa May’s deal AGAIN

He said he will now meet with MPs from across the House of Commons to "find a compromise solution".

"Since her Brexit deal was so overwhelmingly rejected, the Prime Minister has recklessly run down the clock, failed to effectively negotiate with the European Union and refused to find common ground for a deal Parliament could support".

She had been dealt a major blow when attorney-general Geoffrey Cox said in his official legal advice that the assurances did not remove the risk of the United Kingdom being trapped indefinitely in the backstop arrangements.

The 10 DUP MPs - the Conservative Party's minority government allies - also rejected the deal alongside the opposition parties, including 238 Labour MPs, according to the division list.

The EU has said it would need "a credible justification" before agreeing to any extension.

MPs who voted for: Sir Peter Bottomley (Worthing West), Ms Caulfield, Nus Ghani (Wealden), Nick Gibb (Bognor and Littlehampton), Nick Herbert (Arundel and South Downs), Gillian Keegan (Chichester), Stephen Lloyd (Eastbourne), Mr Loughton, Huw Merriman (Bexhill and Battle), Jeremy Quin (Horsham), Amber Rudd (Hastings and Rye), Sir Nicholas Soames (Mid Sussex).

Some 75 Conservative MPs rebelled to vote against the deal, while just three Labour MPs and four independents joined the 235 Tories who backed it.

"I think it is still alive, I do", Ms Truss told BBC Radio 4's PM.

May responded: "The deal that he's proposing has been rejected several times by this house".

Mr Corbyn argued Mrs May has failed, no longer has the ability to lead, and must change her approach.

She said she was "not frightened" of the people in her Birmingham Yardley constituency who voted to leave, saying if they do not like her views they can vote her out.

She said No 10 should consider giving MPs a free vote on the full range of options for the UK's relationship with the European Union - more details of which will emerge later in the form of MPs' amendments.

She said: "It surprised me again as it did last time how major the loss was".

"He used to believe that too, why is he just trying to frustrate it?"

If that happens, MPs will vote on Thursday on extending article 50 which triggered the UK's exit process from the EU.

Boris Johnson is among leadership candidates sizing up their chances. The lawmakers then supported the idea of replacing the backstop provision, which has caused the most controversy in parliament, with alternative arrangements.

The EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, has said the current impasse "can only be solved in the UK" and MPs must decide what they want rather than what they don't.
