UPDATE: Friday 15th March, 1:30pm
Last night, MPs voted to delay Brexit and push back the date that the UK is due to leave by three months or more. The EU would need to agree to that. Theresa May is going to present her deal to parliament again next week to see if it's third time lucky. If MPs reject it for the third time, we won't be leaving the EU on 29th March and talks will continue to make a plan.

Last night MPs narrowly voted to reject a 'no-deal' Brexit. This vote wasn't legally binding, but it gave a clear message that MPs would not put up with leaving the EU without any deal. Tonight they will vote on whether to try to extend the leave date. Theresa May has said that she still wants her deal agreed on and that if MPs don't vote for the deal, then the leave date might be pushed back even further.

Yesterday there was another vote in parliament about Theresa May's Brexit deal. Last time, MPs voted to reject her deal and, this time, they rejected it again.
This means that today, MPs will have another vote. They will vote on whether or not we should leave the EU without a deal (a 'no deal' Brexit).
Tomorrow they will vote on whether or not to extend article 50, which means whether we should push back the 29th March deadline for leaving.
