The result of the UK referendum is clear - but what does a Brexit mean in practice? Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty regulates exactly how a member state can leave the EU, but its wording is thin on details - and it's never been used before.
The UK parliament has started a debate on when the two-year negotiating period for Brexit should end. Some MPs are questioning whether there should be a fixed time at all.
