  • The UK House of Commons will this evening vote on a series of amendments to May's Brexit plan.
  • Backbench MPs from across the House have brought forward amendments which could force May to delay Brexit, or rule out no-deal.
  • Rebel Conservative MPs propose new compromise plan in last ditch bid to unite the party.
  • Voting is expected to begin at 19:00 GMT.

LONDON - Westminster is bracing itself for another historic day with Members of Parliament preparing to vote on amendments which, if passed, would effectively re-write Theresa May's Brexit plan.

MPs will vote on amendments that could have huge ramifications, including delaying the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union, or forcing the prime minister to ask Brussels for major changes to the Brexit deal.

Meanwhile, behind the scenes MPs from all sides of the Brexit divide are working on alternatives to May's deal after it was rejected by a record-breaking House of Commons majority earlier this month.

Voting on the amendments is set to get underway at 19:00 with results expected later in the evening.
