Sir Ian Botham has taken his seat in the House of Lords.

The Brexit-backing former England cricketer wore the traditional scarlet and ermine-trimmed robe for the brief formal introduction ceremony.

Baron Botham, of Ravensworth in the county of North Yorkshire was nominated for a life peerage in the 2020 Political Honours and will sit as a cross bencher.

The proceedings were delayed due to a technical problem, prompting groans from peers when Lord Speaker Lord Fowler told them: "I think rain has stopped play just for the moment."
