Diane Abbott on backing Brexit bill

Shadow home secretary Diane Abbott says she voted in favour of the government's Brexit bill because she is "a loyal member of the shadow cabinet".

Ms Abbott missed the first vote on the bill.

It passed the House of Commons at the third reading by 494 to 122 votes.
