    Democracy was under siege in Washington on Wednesday as Donald Trump supporters, egged on by their hero earlier today, surrounded the Capitol building where senators were about to certify that Joe Biden won the election two months ago.

    They managed to break in and had the run of the grand corridors and offices inside the building. Police couldn’t keep them out.

    There have been reports of a gunshot – and of a woman being shot dead.

    Senators fled. Vice President Mike Pence, who was presiding over the transfer of power was rushed to a secure location.

    Earlier, President Trump was still insisting the election was stolen, but told his supporters to go home.
