Watch: Sir Lindsay Hoyle orders MPs to be kicked out of House of Commons during chaos at PMQs
Prime Minister's Questions descended into chaos as two raucous MPs were unceremoniously kicked out of the House of Commons.
MPs packed the chamber for the first PMQs since Boris Johnson announced he would be resigning as prime minister.
The opening moments quickly turned into a farce as Alba MPs jeered and barracked the prime minister over his veto of a Scottish independence referendum.
Struggling to shout over the noise of the chamber, speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle told them to "shut up or get out" before ordering Neale Hanvey and Kenny MacAskill to be removed after they refused to back down.
MacAskill could be heard trying to raise a point of order and appeared to say “we need a referendum” before he was drowned out by other MPs.
He refused to sit down and continued to speak, prompting Hoyle to act.
Hanvey then rose to his feet and, though he could not be heard over the heckling from Tory MPs, was subsequently told to leave the chamber.
Hoyle subsequently shouted: "Neale Hanvey, I am now naming you, and Kenny MacAskill, to leave this chamber… Out, now! Serjeant-at-arms, escort them out!"
The pair were later suspended from the House over their conduct.
Johnson struck a defiant tone during what should be his penultimate PMQs, saying: "It is true I leave not at a time of my choosing, but I am proud of the teamwork involved in all of those projects... and I'm also proud of the leadership I have given."
"I will be leaving with my head held high", he added.
However, he hinted that the leadership race may not go the distance and his successor could be chosen “by acclamation” rather than requiring the planned run-off vote.
The first round of voting in the leadership contest was taking place on Wednesday afternoon.
Subsequent rounds of voting by MPs will whittle the field of contenders down to a final two, with the membership of the Tory party then deciding on the eventual winner who is due to be named on September 5.
That could change if only one candidate is left standing before party members get a chance to have their say.
