THREE Barnsley MPs voted in favour of triggering article 50 in Wednesday's Brexit vote - but one abstained.

MP Angela Smith for Penistone and Stocksbridge said that she had been unable to vote after being called away from Parliament due to family reasons.

Barnsley Central MP Dan Jarvis, Barnsley East's Michael Dugher and Wentworth and Dearne's John Healey all voted to trigger article 50.
