The House of Commons speaker says Boris Johnson would be acting like a "bank robber" if he refuses to delay Brexit.

John Bercow has used a speech in London to say the Prime Minister must obey a law which has been rushed through to prevent the UK leaving without an agreement.

He says Boris Johnson will be setting "a terrible example" if he tried to ignore Parliament to leave the EU without an agreement.

And he said the PM can only achieve the process with MPs' consent.
