United Kingdom, London
September 25, 2019 at 18:13 GMT +00:00 · Published

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson arrived at the Palace of Westminster in London on Wednesday, a day after the country's Supreme Court ruled his decision to suspend parliament was unlawful.

Footage shows protesters with UK and EU flags, and one dressed as a clown with a Johnson mask, gathered outside parliament as the cars arrived.

Judges ruled on Tuesday that the decision by Prime Minister Boris Johnson to suspend parliament in the run-up to Brexit was "unlawful", saying it was "void and of no effect."

Johnson was forced to curtail his trip to the United Nations in New York City and return home in order to face parliament, landing back in the UK early on Wednesday.
