The deputy speaker clashes with SNP MPs over the EU bill

Tempers frayed during a late Commons sitting on the bill to trigger the UK's exit from the EU.

Problems began shortly before midnight as Deputy Speaker Lindsay Hoyle attempted to bring a speech by SNP MP Joanna Cherry to an end.

Her colleague Alex Salmond was unhappy about the move.

Opposition MPs have complained about an alleged lack of time allowed for debate on the bill, although the House had agreed a timetable motion.
