Supreme Court rules Boris Johnson's advice to Queen to suspend Parliament was 'unlawful'

The Supreme Court has ruled that Prime Minister Boris Johnson's advice to the Queen to suspend Parliament for five weeks was 'unlawful'.

Mr Johnson has said he "strongly disagrees" with the court ruling but that Parliament "will come back".

But Mr Johnson continued to say he will get on and deliver Brexit by October 31, despite MPs ruling the UK is unable to leave the EU without a deal.

The prime minister met business leaders at the UN General Assembly, before meeting President Donald Trump.

During a UN meeting with President Trump, Mr Johnson appeared to rule out resigning over the Supreme Court result.
