Politicians in the United States are calling for a key vote on President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee to be delayed, after an allegation of sexual assault emerged.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh has denied the accusation by Dr Christine¬†Blasey¬†Ford, who says he assaulted her when they were both teenagers. They’ve both said they’re willing to testify before Congress.
