The British Prime Minister’s got her way – as MPs have voted in favour of a piece of crucial Brexit legislation.

The Withdrawal Bill is designed to pull EU laws back under UK control.

But opponents are warning it goes too far, and want changes to be made before the next vote.

Meanwhile the UK has agreed to send its troops on EU military operations, after Brexit.

In a new position paper to be published later, the British government will say it wants to keep close security and military ties with the European Union.
