Speaker may face challenge as MPs gather in Commons

MPs will come to the House of Commons later for the first time since the general election, where they will choose the next Commons Speaker.

John Bercow is likely to return to the role, but not before facing a challenge from some MPs.

If enough call for a vote it would be the first such ballot in 175 years.

Ben Wright reports.
