THERESA May and Jeremy Corbyn both faced sizeable rebellions over Brexit as the Commons argued against no deal - but ordered changes to the Government's Withdrawal Agreement.

A total of 14 backbench Labour MPs voted against amendments which aimed to take control of Commons business from the Government in a bid to shape the next phase of Brexit talks, despite Labour leader Mr Corbyn ordering them to support the proposals.

For Prime Minister Mrs May, there were also multiple rebellions on the Brexit votes - with 17 Tories supporting colleague Dame Caroline Spelman's proposal to prevent a no-deal Brexit.

Dame Caroline's amendment was approved by 318 votes to 310, a majority of eight.

Somerset MPs Rebecca Pow, Ian Liddell-Grainger, James Heappey and Marcus Fysh, voted against the plan.

However the county MPs all supported prominent Tory Sir Graham Brady's plan to replace the controversial Northern Ireland backstop with "alternative arrangements to avoid a hard border", which was backed by 317 votes to 301 - a majority of 16.

Seven Labour MPs rebelled to support Sir Graham's amendment, including former ministers Ian Austin, Kate Hoey and Jim Fitzpatrick, while eight Tories rebelled to vote against it - with former ministers Dominic Grieve and Anna Soubry among them.

The seven votes on different Brexit proposals highlighted the splits in each party and how their respective Brexit and pro-EU factions can sway key decisions.

Following the result, Mrs May said she now had a mandate to take back for further negotiations with the EU.

She said: "Tonight a majority of members have said they would support a deal with changes to the backstop combined with measures to address concerns over Parliament's role in the negotiation of the future relationship and commitments on workers' rights in law where need be.

"It's now clear there is a route that can secure a substantial and sustainable majority in this House for leaving the EU with a deal.

"We will now take this mandate forward and seek to obtain legally binding changes to the Withdrawal Agreement that deal with concerns on the backstop while guaranteeing no return to a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland."

Mrs May said it was also clear there was a majority against a no-deal Brexit and invited opposition MPs to meet her to discuss how to reach consensus.

Mr Corbyn said because Dame Caroline's amendment had passed he was now willing to meet Mrs May for talks on the Brexit next steps.

The Labour leader said: "Now that the House has voted emphatically to reject the no-deal option the Prime Minister was supporting, could I say we are now prepared to meet her to put forward the points of view from the Labour Party of the kind of deal we want from the European Union.

"To protect jobs, to protect livings standards, and to protect rights and conditions in this country."

The SNP's Westminster leader Ian Blackford claimed that by passing Sir Graham's amendment the Government had "ripped up the Good Friday Agreement".

This was fiercely rejected by DUP Westminster leader Nigel Dodds, who also told the Commons: "This is a significant night because for the first time the House by majority has expressed what sort of deal will get through and will have a majority, and we will work with the Prime Minister to deliver the right deal for the United Kingdom."
