David Lammy MP: Those responsible for Windrush should 'fall on their sword'

Labour MP David Lammy told today’s Good Morning Britain that those responsible for the Windrush scandal should fall on their sword.

He said: “I’ve been a minister in the government, if I had been responsible for the pain that we’re hearing, I certainly would have stepped aside. I would have fallen on my sword, I would have been so embarrassed with myself and what I had been responsible for. We used to do the honourable thing, we seem no longer to be bothered. Amber Rudd talked about the State yesterday as if she wasn’t the State, she’s responsible for the Home Office, who’ve done all this to people.”

Duchess of Cambridge has a baby boy

The Duchess of Cambridge has given birth to a baby boy, Kensington Palace has announced.

The child, which was born at 1101hrs and weighs 8lbs 7oz, will be fifth in line to the throne.

The baby is Catherine and William’s third child together, following the birth of Prince George in July 2013 and Princess Charlotte in May 2015.

A tweet from the Kensington Palace confirmed the safe delivery of the happy couple's third child - along with an announcement outside the Lindo Wing from the local Town Crier.

Royal fans gather outside Lindo Wing ahead of birth of Royal baby

Fans of the Royal family have begun to gather outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in west London ahead of the birth of the Royal baby. The Duchess of Cambridge is reportedly inside the Wing and in labour with her third child - it's not known if the new arrival will be a boy or a girl.

The baby is Catherine and William’s third child together, following the birth of Prince George in July 2013 and Princess Charlotte in May 2015.

The baby prince or princess will be fifth in line to the throne, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh's sixth great-grandchild and a younger brother or sister for Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The Duchess is being cared for by consultant obstetrician Guy Thorpe-Beeston, who is the surgeon-gynaecologist to the Royal household, and consultant gynaecologist Alan Farthing, the Queen's surgeon-gynaecologist - part of the trusted team who delivered George and Charlotte.

Highly-trained midwives will also be on hand, with experts waiting in the wings if emergency help is needed.

Bookies have slashed the odds on names and the gender of the new arrival - Arthur, James and Albert are said to top the list. Should it be a girl, favourites are said to be Alice, Mary or Victoria. According to a Twitter poll, more than half of Good Morning Britain viewers believe that the new arrival will be a boy.
