The European Parliament has adopted a resolution urging Britain to "immediately" triggering Article 50 notifying of its intention to leave the European Union.

The vote at the emergency session, held in Brussels, comes ahead of a two-day European Council where Brexit is to be discussed among all EU member states, the UK being included in Tuesday's talks and excluded from those scheduled for Wednesday.

Bitter discussions have taken place among MEPs and the attending EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, with UKIP leader Nigel Farage delivering a "post-Brexit" speech inflaming the plenary hall.

Juncker has meanwhile urged UKIP MEPs to leave the European Parliament.
