Brexit: Tears and Auld Lang Syne as MEPs back terms

Members of the European Parliament have overwhelmingly backed the terms of the UK’s exit from the EU, amid high emotions during the UK MEPs’ final debate in Brussels.

The Brexit Party’s Nigel Farage and his colleagues were told off for waving Union Jack flags, while the Green Party’s Molly Scott Cato wept as she spoke about returning to the chamber one day.

After the vote, MEPs marked the UK’s exit by singing Auld Lang Syne.
