Watch live as Facebook whistleblower testifies to UK Parliament

Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen is giving evidence to UK Parliament this afternoon, after she passed internal documents from the social media company to The Wall Street Journal in September. Monday's joint committee session on the draft Online Safety Bill comes after papers leaked by Ms Haugen revealed that Instagram knew of its negative impact on teenagers' mental health.
