Police are called to flat Boris Johnson shares with Carrie Symonds

Following elimination votes Britain's Conservative Party members will vote for the final two contenders with the victor due to replace Prime Minister Theresa May as party leader and prime minister.

Former London mayor Johnson topped the fifth ballot of MPs in the governing Conservative Party with 160 votes, ahead of Foreign Secretary Hunt on 77 and Environment Secretary Gove on 75.

Mr Johnson has cast himself as the only candidate who can deliver Brexit on 31 October while fighting off the electoral threats of Nigel Farage's Brexit Party and Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party.

In a fourth ballot of Conservative Party lawmakers, which eliminated British Home Secretary Sajid Javid, Johnson was again way out in front of his rivals.

Speaking on a visit to a factory in Worcester, Mr Hunt argued the contest was a test of character over Brexit, saying: "Do you have the skills and can you be trusted as prime minister to get the right outcome?"

British police have been called out to the London home of Conservative leadership candidate Boris Johnson and his partner Carrie Symonds.

"I look forward to getting out across the United Kingdom and to set out my plan to deliver Brexit, unite our country, and create a brighter future for all of us".
