Boris Johnson's second bid to trigger general election fails

Boris Johnson has suffered another humiliating Commons defeat after his second bid for a snap general election was rejected by MPs.

The Prime Minister said he wanted to head to the polls next month to break the political deadlock, as he accused opposition parties of making "outrageous excuses" to delay.

But Labour and other opposition MPs refused to back the bid - which needed a two-thirds majority in the Commons - while the risk of a no-deal remained.

MPs voted 293 to 46, short of the 434 needed - marking the new PM's sixth Commons defeat.
