BREXIT blockers have been handed a boost after a Scottish court says Boris was UNLAWFUL to shutdown Parliament.

Top judges rule in favour of an appeal against the PM and the case will go to the Supreme Court next week.

However, no measure is being made to cancel the suspension of Parliament, the Court of Session in Edinburgh heard today.

The original case was brought by a cross-party group of 70 MPs and anti-Brexit activists fighting to reverse the PM’s decision to stop MPs sitting for more than a month.

Last week it looked like Boris had seen off the legal challenge after top judge Lord Doherty ruled the prorogation was lawful.

Now the case will be taken to Britain’s highest court later this month.
