Cheers In Parliament For Hero Police Officers

PCs Craig Nicholls and Jonathan Wright, from West Yorkshire Police, have been applauded by MPs in the House of Commons.

There have been unusual scenes in the House of Commons, as MPs applauded the two police officers who apprehended the killer of murdered Batley & Spen MP Jo Cox.

Speaker John Bercow praised PCs Craig Nicholls and Jonathan Wright, who have been visiting Westminster.

Jo Cox was shot and stabbed in Birstall just days before the EU referendum in 2016.

Bercow described the pair as "extremely brave".

Clapping is usually considered against parliamentary convention.
