Conservative grandee and former leadership contender Lord Heseltine has launched a scathing attack on Boris Johnson, accusing him of creating the "greatest constitutional crisis in modern times". Mr Heseltine, a former deputy prime minister, told the BBC the former London mayor had "ripped the (Conservative) party apart." Lord Heseltine described Mr Johnson as "like a general, that led his army to the sound of guns, and at the sight of the battlefield abandoned the field."

Michael Gove has said he chose to run for the Conservative Party leadership after deciding "reluctantly but firmly" that Boris Johnson was not capable of uniting the party or the country. "It had to fall to someone else... I felt it had to fall to me," the justice secretary told the BBC. Mr Gove - who was expected to back Boris Johnson's candidacy - said he made his decision on Wednesday evening. Following his surprise announcement, Mr Johnson withdrew from the race.
