British lawmakers have rejected the Brexit deal proposed by embattled Prime Minister Theresa May in Parliament for the third time, throwing the UK's divorce plans with the EU into further chaos.

Last night, MPs voted in the House of Commons against the terms of Britain's so-called divorce from the European Union (EU) by 344 to 286. An approval to the deal, struck between May and the EU, would have given the British parliament time until May 22 to get all the accompanying legislation passed.

The key vote took place on the day Britain was earlier scheduled to exit the bloc, until the EU leaders granted more time.

The EU had given May until April 12 to propose a different way forward if her divorce bill does not clear the UK Parliament hurdle.

As the MPs rejected deal again, she must set out a new plan by April 12.

Commenting on the outcome, May told MPs that the implications of the house's decision are grave and this government will continue to press for the orderly Brexit that the result of the referendum demand.

Meanwhile the opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said it is clear that this House does not support the deal and it now has to change.

In the past, the House of Commons rejected May's withdrawal plan twice, both times by overwhelming margins.
