Watch live as Priti Patel and Nadine Dorries address MPs

Priti Patel and Nadine Dorries are updating parliament on a number of matters.

Ms Patel, the home secretary, is expected to update the house on security matters, while Ms Dorries, the culture secretary, is expected to speak on plans for the BBC.
