Brett Kavanaugh is to become the fifth conservative judge in America’s highest court, after being narrowly confirmed by senators in the aftermath of hearings and FBI investigation of sex assault allegations against him.

In a chamber where Republicans hold the narrowest of majorities, all senators voted in accordance with party lines, with the exception of Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who endorsed Kavanaugh, and Alaska Republican Lisa Murkowski, who voted against.

Some screams could be heard in the gallery ahead of the vote, with Vice President Mike Pence calling for order to be restored.
