Uproar in Commons during Brexit debate clash

Former Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond clashed with the deputy speaker in a heated exchange over whether he had cut off an SNP MP while speaking.

Tempers frayed after seven hours of debate during the Brexit Bill's Monday committee stage in the Commons.

The disagreement came as deputy speaker Lindsay Hoyle tried to move on from SNP MP Joanna Cherry.

Mr Salmond claimed Mr Hoyle had cut off his party colleague while speaking and demanded she be allowed to continue.
