British Parliament on Tuesday rejected Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal for a second time, plunging the UK into a state of uncertainty just two weeks ahead of the country's divorce from the European Union.
The House of Commons voted against the deal by 391 votes to 242.
Seventy-five Conservative MPs rebelled against their party's position by rejecting May's deal. Three Labour parliamentarians rebelled against their leader by voting in favour of the agreement.
There will now be a debate on Wednesday on whether the UK should leave the EU without a deal.
In her address to the parliament after the defeat, May said she "profoundly regrets" MPs decision.
May said she is conscious of the "potential damage" leaving the EU without a deal would do and the lawmakers now face "an unenviable choice" of what to do next.
