This is the historic moment a UK judge ruled Boris Johnson's suspension — or proroguing — of parliament was unlawful.

"The decision to advise Her Majesty to prorogue parliament was unlawful because it had the effect of frustrating or preventing the ability of parliament to carry out its constitutional functions without reasonable justification," Supreme Court President Brenda Hale said, reading out the historic decision.
