MPs from around the region had their say on a no-deal Brexit in a night of high political drama.

With just days to go until Britain leaves the EU, the House of Commons was last night (March 13) asked to vote on a motion ruling out leaving without a deal.

The motion was passed with a majority of 43 but despite MPs rejecting the no-deal option it could still happen because the vote was not binding.

Stourbridge Tory MP Margot James, who is minister for digital and creative industries, defied government instructions to vote against the motion and abstained.

The region's two cabinet ministers, Bromsgrove's Sajid Javid (Home Secretary) and South Staffordshire's Gavin Williamson (Defence Secretary) followed instructions and voted against the motion.

Tory Mike Wood, Dudley South and James Morris (Con - Halesowen and Rowley Regis) also voted against the motion while the independent MP for Dudley North, Ian Austin, voted for the motion.
