Earlier, Christine Blasey Ford said an assault by Mr Kavanaugh 36 years ago had “drastically” affected her life.

Dr Ford told the committee that the alleged event had left her “afraid and ashamed”.

President Donald Trump has now said the Senate “must vote” on Mr Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.
