Lord Adonis: 'Government tried to silence me'

Lord Adonis has said he was forced to resign as an independent advisor after the government "tried to silence" him.

The former Labour minister quit his role as chairman of the government's Infrastructure Commission with an attack on Theresa May's government.

He said it had become "hyper sensitive to any criticism".

Conservative MP Chris Philp called his comments "complete nonsense".
