Britain "does not and will not" recognise the unilateral declaration of independence by the Catalan regional parliament today, a spokeswoman for Prime Minister Theresa May said. 

"It is based on a vote that was declared illegal by the Spanish courts. We continue to want to see the rule of law upheld, the Spanish Constitution respected, and Spanish unity preserved," the spokeswoman said in a statement. 

Catalan lawmakers sharply escalated the political crisis in Spain by voting to declare independence, with Madrid immediately vowing to "restore legality" and quash the region's secessionist bid. 

May's reaction mirrored those of other European leaders, including French President Emmanuel Macron and EU President Donald Tusk, who both voiced support for Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy.
