UK Prime Minister Theresa May was backed by MPs following a no confidence motion in the House of Commons on Wednesday, with 325 against the motion and 306 for it; a 19-vote margin.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn tabled the motion of no confidence after May's Brexit deal suffered a historic defeat in the Commons, with 432-to-202 MPs voting against her Brexit proposal.

May survived the vote, but she must return to parliament by Monday with an alternative Brexit plan.
