Ruth Davidson outlines her support for Theresa May in the contest to succeed David Cameron

Ruth Davidson has said Theresa May should be the next prime minister and leader of the Conservative Party.

Mrs May, the home secretary, and Energy Minister Andrea Leadsom are the two candidates to replace David Cameron when he steps down later this year.

The leader of the Scottish Conservatives told the BBC she believes Mrs May is the best candidate to deal with the aftermath of the EU referendum result.
