UK correspondent Harriet Line reports on the chaos in the Commons today after Penny Mordaunt accused Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle of "hijacking" the Gaza ceasefire debate.

She'll also look at the failure of a Trident missile and government assurances Britain's nuclear deterrent remains "dependable".

The immigration watchdog David Neal was sacked for leaking critical reports and police have dropped an investigation into criminal allegations against NZ-born broadcaster Dan Wootton.
