European Parliament approves Brexit deal as expected

The European Parliament voted in favour of approving the Brexit deal, 621 vs 49, allowing Brexit to take place on Friday. 

Earlier in the day, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said that the UK will not be able to bring back the benefits of being an EU member with the new partnership deal.
