A THIRD attempt by Prime Minister Theresa May to win approval for her Brexit deal has failed.

MPs have voted 344-286 against the PM's deal.

Mrs May said she "profoundly regretted" the decision by MPs to reject her deal again.

The PM had pledged to step down if the deal was approved.

Moray MP Douglas Ross had revealed before the vote that he was going to support the Prime Minister.

Mr Ross rejected the first deal in January and missed the second vote due to the birth of his first child.

The Brexit date is now April 12 but the UK Government will now have to ask for a longer extension.

Commentators said the vote meant the likelihood of a no Brexit was increased.
