British Parliament has officially been suspended for five weeks amid Brexit crisis as Members of Parliament not due back until 14th October.

According to media reports, PM Boris Johnson's bid to call a snap election in October was defeated for a second time.

Opposition MPs refused to back it, insisting a law blocking a no-deal Brexit must be implemented first.

In all, 293 MPs voted for the Prime Minister's motion for an early election, far short of the two thirds needed.
