Donald Trump has been impeached by the US House of Representatives, in his final week in office.

A week after hundreds of the President’s supporters violently invaded the US Capitol - forcing Congressmen and women to flee - Representatives voted to impeach Mr Trump for inciting insurrection and falsely claiming the presidential election victory of Joe Biden was fraudulent.

Several Republicans abandoned the president and backed the articles of impeachment.



A trial will now take place in the Senate - the upper house of Congress. If US senators also support impeachment, Donald Trump will be banned from every standing again for any public office in the United States.

Sophie Raworth presents BBC News at Ten reporting by North America editor Jon Sopel.
