Mhairi Black: Applause greets youngest MP's maiden speech

Westminster's youngest MP, the SNP's 20-year-old Mhairi Black, won a round of applause for her maiden speech.

During her speech the MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire South quoted "a personal hero" Tony Benn and urged Labour to work with the SNP in opposition.

Her round of applause was cut short by the deputy speaker who said MPs could show their approval - but not by clapping.
