Tory leadership race: The runners and riders as James Cleverly withdraws

Brexit Minister James Cleverly has pulled out of the Tory leadership race, claiming his fellow MPs were not comfortable with the idea of picking a "relatively new" colleague.

The MP for Braintree, who was first elected in 2015, concluded that he was "highly unlikely" to reach the final two candidates chosen by MPs to be put to a final vote of Tory members.
