A petition calling for Theresa May to cancel Brexit by revoking Article 50 has passed a million signatures.

Parliament’s petitions committee tweeted that the rate of signatures was “the highest the site has ever had to deal with”, after the website crashed.

It comes as May is in Brussels to ask the EU for a delay to next Friday’s Brexit date.

Downing Street said the prime minister “has said many times she will not countenance revoking Article 50”.

Revoke Article 50 has been trending on Twitter as people were urged to sign it. At one point, the petitions committee said there were nearly 2,000 signatures a minute.
