The government has said it will fight a High Court ruling that could frustrate its timetable for Brexit, claiming that voters want them to "get on with it".

Three judges ruled that Parliament, not the government alone, can trigger the formal process of leaving the EU.

Brexit Secretary David Davis said 17.4 million Leave voters had given the government "the biggest mandate in history" to leave the EU.

The Supreme Court is expected to hear the government's appeal next month.
