A Scottish judge at the Court of Session in Edinburgh has declared the prime minister’s decision to shut down parliament is lawful.

Judge Lord Doherty said on Wednesday that the issue is for politicians and voters, and not that of the courts.

More than 75 MPs challenged Boris Johnson’s decision to prorogue parliament saying it was unconstitutional as he is doing so to pass through a no-deal Brexit on 31 October.
