    Myanmar’s former ambassador in London spent a night in his car after saying he was locked out of his embassy.

    Kyaw Zwar Minn said staff were asked to leave the building by Myanmar’s military attaché, and he was dismissed as the country’s representative.

    The ex-envoy has criticised the military coup in the country, and called for Myanmar’s ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi to be released.

    British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has condemned the “bullying actions,” but the UK has accepted the change.
