Brent’s Labour councillors have voted for a People’s Vote in defiance of their party leader’s stance on Brexit.
Cllr Neil Nerva, representing Queen’s Park, put forward a motion for a second vote on exiting the European Union at a full council meeting on Monday.
He said: “The remainers and leavers are agreed on one aspect - they oppose the Theresa May deal.”
He added that the “logical thing is to let the people decide once and for all.”
He said there were three choices - accept Theresa May’s deal, accept a no deal or choose to remain.

Cllr Keith Perrin (Lab), said: “This is not our policy. We need to change the government and get a good deal.”
