A group of 21 Conservative MPs joined a cross-party group trying to delay Brexit to stop no deal next month.

They helped inflict defeat on Prime Minister Boris Johnson in his first major vote since taking over at Number 10, overriding a Commons rule that says only the government can propose new laws.

The group will use their chance on Wednesday to try to get the prime minister to ask Brussels to delay the Brexit deadline from 31 October to 31 January 2020 – a date the EU would ultimately be in charge of.

Here are the Conservative MPs who voted against orders and have been expelled from the party and banned from standing for it at the next election:
