Protesters cheer as British parliament forces Johnson towards Brexit delay

LONDON, Oct 19 (Reuters) - Anti-Brexit protesters gathered outside Britain's parliament cheered as lawmakers voted to withhold support for Prime Minister Boris Johnson's EU exit deal until formal ratification legislation has passed, Reuters reporters said.

"Hear us," many of the protesters said outside the 800-year-old parliament building. Others chanted "People's vote." (Reporting by Andrew MacAskill, Zandi Shabalala and James Davey, Writing by Iain Withers)
