Andrea Leadsom statement ending her Tory leadership bid
Andrea Leadsom reads out a statement explaining the end of her bid to lead the Conservative Party.
She was flanked by supporters, and took no questions, as she said: “Strong leadership is needed urgently to begin the work of withdrawing from the European Union."
Her withdrawal leaves Theresa May as the only candidate to take over leading the party, and become UK PM.
