Operation Yellowhammer documents are released by Downing Street

Operation Yellowhammer documents have been released by Downing Street – but Boris Johnson has refused to hand over key aides’ emails and texts.

Redacted versions of the documents connected to no-deal Brexit planning have now been published by No10.

But, crucially, Downing Street has refused a request to hand over the texts, emails, and WhatsApp messages of key advisers. 

The lack of additional information puts No10 on a collision course with Remainer MPs after they demanded access to personal phones in a bid to prove Boris Johnson suspended Parliament to avoid Brexit scrutiny.

MPs voted by 311 to 302 in favour of telling Number 10 advisers to hand over WhatsApp, Facebook and text messages and for ministers to release their No Deal contingency plans in full.

The MPs, led by former Tory attorney general Dominic Grieve, set a deadline for the material to be surrendered by 11pm today.
