The US House of Representatives has voted to send impeachment charges to the Senate, paving the way for the next stage of the trial into Donald Trump.

Members of the House voted largely along party lines, with the Democrats securing a 228-193 victory.

The US president is facing charges of abuse of power over his pressure on Ukraine to investigate Democratic presidential rival Joe Biden, as Trump withheld aid to the country.

He was also charged with obstructing Congress' probe into the case. Trump has labelled the charges a "hoax" and denied any wrongdoing.
