MPs will take their seats in the House of Commons later this morning after judges ruled Boris Johnson's suspension of Parliament was unlawful.

Politicians are returning to Westminster after 11 judges unanimously ruled that the court had been presented with no reasons - “let alone a good reason” - for the five-week suspension of parliament.

Boris Johnson has said he disagrees with the judgment.

He's due to return to London later today amid calls from opposition parties for him to resign.

Meanwhile, the Taoiseach says the British prime minister needs to put concrete proposals on replacing the backstop on the table by the first week of October.

He met Boris Johnson yesterday at the UN General Assembly in New York.

Leo Varadkar says Europe will need ideas well in advance of next month's crucial EU summit.

As the House of Commons returns, he suggested getting a deal passed in the UK will be difficult.
