Ian Blackford was told to leave the chamber after accusing the Prime Minister of having ‘wilfully misled Parliament’.

He said: ‘He is guilty of serial failures of leadership & judgment. He has clearly misled Parliament.He is a Lier.’’

He was given several opportunities to withdraw the word ‘wilfully’ – meaning it was done deliberately – by Speaker Lindsay Hoyle, but refused to do so.

He then walked out the chamber as the Speaker officially ordered him to leave the Commons.
