EU justice measures backed by MPs despite anger over procedure

The government has won its bid to sign up again to 35 EU justice measures - including the European Arrest Warrant - following a dramatic Commons vote.

But ministers were accused of breaking a promise to hold a vote on the warrant itself.

Earlier, Commons Speaker John Bercow said people would be "contemptuous" of the government's tactics.

Ben Wright reports.
