Scuffles break out at the Speaker’s chair amid attempts to shut down Parliament

Scuffles have broken out at the Speaker’s chair amid attempts to shut down Parliament.

Signs with ‘silenced’ written on them were held by some Labour MPs, including Clive Lewis (Norwich South).

Lloyd Russell-Moyle (Brighton Kemptown) appeared to try to hold on to Speaker John Bercow at the point he was requested to lead MPs to the Lords, with doorkeepers intervening.

Shouts of ‘shame on you’ could be heard as Government MPs left the Commons to head to the House of Lords for the prorogation ceremony.
