MPs have voted overwhelmingly to give Theresa May the power to trigger the start of Britain’s divorce talks from the European Union.

The House of Commons approved the Brexit bill at third reading, which allows the Prime Minister to begin withdrawal talks under Article 50 of the EU treaties.

After two days of debate, the The European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill entered its final stages in the Commons on Wednesday.

The House voted in favour of the bill by 494 to 122 - a majority of 372.
