The government’s suspension of Parliament has been ruled unlawful by Scotland’s highest court.

The Court of Session has ruled unanimously that Boris Johnson’s intent in proroguing was to stymie Parliament, and as a result, it no longer stands.

The decision overturns an earlier ruling from the court, which said last week Mr Johnson had not broken the law.

The government will appeal the verdict in the Supreme Court with the case to start on Tuesday, but it means that as it stands, Boris Johnson’s prorogation of Parliament has been undone and no longer applies.
