Eleven Conservative rebels helped to defeat Theresa May in a critical vote on its key piece of Brexit legislation.

MPs amended the EU Withdrawal Bill against Theresa May's will, so guaranteeing Parliament a "meaningful" vote on any deal she agrees with Brussels.

In the end the Government was defeated by 309 votes to 305, a margin of just four votes.

The 11 Conservative ​rebels were:

Dominic Grieve

Heidi Allen

Ken Clarke

Nicky Morgan

Anna Soubry

Sarah Wollaston

Bob Neill

Stephen Hammond

Oliver Heald

Jonathan Djanogly

Antoinette Sandbach

A 12th Tory in the aye lobby was John Stevenson who voted both ways - an active abstention
