    Last month, US President Donald Trump nominated Amy Coney Barrett for the post of the Supreme Court justice following the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

    Watch a live broadcast from the US Senate where a final vote on Barrett's nomination as a new justice is taking place.

    The procedure is taking place following three days of the Senate debating the nomination.
