Video: Brexit debate rages on in the UK

The British parliament is preparing to debate a petition calling for a second referendum on EU membership.

The debate was prompted by a petition signed by more than four million people in the wake of the June vote to leave the union. It has no legal significance, but the arguments around Brexit are raging on.

Al Jazeera’s Barnaby Phillips reports from Sunderland, where most people voted in favour of Britain leaving the EU.
