Andrew Neil asked Theresa May about her Conservative Party conference speech where she claimed an illegal immigrant was allowed to stay in the country because of his cat.

He later read a statement from the Judicial Office at the Royal Courts of Justice, saying her claims about Maya the cat were not true.

Since the interview, the home secretary said she was standing by her claims.
