Government loses Brexit appeal 8-3, in summary:
Attorney General Jeremy Wright, speaking on behalf of the government said "the government is disappointed with the outcome" of the judgment, but it will do everything it can "to comply with it".
He said the court made clear it was not trying to reverse the Brexit decision, but added that it will now "be a political matter and not a legal matter".
He added that Brexit Secretary David Davis will make a further statement in Parliament later today.
