Boris Johnson has given a “big, big thank you” to the people of Glasgow for their part in hosting COP26.

The Prime Minister, who was suffering from a croaky-voice, made the remarks as he gave a statement in the House of Commons on Monday.

Acknowledging the disruption in the city during the summit, he told Glaswegians “we could not have done it without you”.

Johnson spoke after COP26 came to a conclusion over the weekend, and rejected suggestions that the summit had been a failure.
