Thousands of Catalans gathered outside the parliament building and cheered and danced after the motion passed. The Spanish prime minister wrote on Twitter immediately after the vote: ‘I ask all Spaniards to remain calm. The rule of law will restore legality in Catalonia.’  Spain’s government will meet at 5pm UK time to discuss the crisis.
