THERESA MAY must gain the approval of MPs and unelected peers before triggering Brexit, the Supreme Court ruled today.

In a verdict upholding a High Court decision, the UK’s most senior court this morning dismissed the Government’s appeal against last November’s verdict.

By a mjority of eight to three, Supreme Court judges ruled the Government must gain an Act of Parliament before triggering Article 50.

But the Supreme Court boosted the Government by ruling devolved parliaments in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland do not need to vote on Article 50 before Brexit can begin.

The verdict represents a major blow to Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon’s fight against her country being taken out of the EU.
