Pro-Brexit leave the European Union supporters take part in the final leg of the "March to Leave" along the embankment in London, Friday

UK lawmakers have rejected the government’s deal to exit the European Union for a third time, leaving the date and terms of the UK’s departure from the bloc uncertain.

The House of Commons voted 286-344 against the withdrawal agreement struck between Prime Minister Theresa May and the EU.

It follows defeats by even wider margins in January and March, and leaves the government’s blueprint for exiting the bloc in tatters.

Britain now has until April 12 to tell the EU what it plans to do next. It must either cancel Brexit, seek a longer delay or crash out of the bloc without a deal.
