The British Prime Minister has denied lying to the Queen over the suspension of UK Parliament.

Boris Johnson has said claims that the suspension was done in order to avoid MPs scrutinising Brexit are "absolutely not true."

Mr Johnson says he absolutely did not cover up the real reason he wanted to suspend Parliament.

Yesterday, Scotland's highest court ruled Boris Johnson's suspension of Parliament was unlawful.

The UK government plans to appeal the latest ruling on Tuesday

Johnson says "the High Court in England plainly aggress with us, but the Supreme Court will have to decide."

Meanwhile, a judge in Belfast has rejected a claim the Government's Brexit strategy would harm the peace process.
