The Prime Minister has been accused of "scapegoating" the governor of the Bank of England in order to save Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng from the impact of the mini-budget.

SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford made the claim at Prime Minister's Questions, and warned Liz Truss that people across the UK were no longer just worried about heating their homes, but keeping their homes as mortgage rates rise.
