PM 'foolish to bulldoze ahead' on Brexit says Mike Russell

Scotland's Brexit Minister Mike Russell has said Theresa May is "foolish" to "bulldoze ahead" following the High Court ruling on a parliamentary vote.

Speaking on the BBC's Sunday Politics Scotland programme he also suggested the French government may know more about UK ministers' thinking on Brexit than the Westminster parliament.

And he said SNP MPs could work with their Labour counterparts at Westminster to ensure the UK stays in the single market.

The prime minister has insisted her government is "getting on" with Brexit.
