UK PM loses working majority in House of Commons

From First Up, 5:09 am on 4 September 2019

We cross to the UK where Prime Minister Boris Johnson has lost his working majority in the House of Commons after a Conservative MP defected to the Liberal Democrats. In a dramatic move, MP Phillip Lee crossed the floor and took his seat on the opposition benches as Mr Johnson addressed the Commons. It comes ahead of a showdown between the Prime Minister and Tory rebels over Brexit. Joining me now from London is our corespondent Olly Barratt
