SNP MPs told off for clapping in House of Commons chamber

Scottish National Party MPs have been told to stop clapping in the House of Commons by Speaker John Bercow.

The MPs clapped on at least three separate occasions during the response by their leader at Westminster, Angus Robertson.

Mr Bercow told the MPs to "show some respect" for the traditions of parliament.

He intervened after Mr Robertson criticised Labour's supposed support for austerity.
