Prime Minister May to face no-confidence vote tonight

Conservative rebels have triggered the required votes for a no-confidence vote in Prime Minister Theresa May.

In a letter published this morning, the chairman of the 1922 Committee Graham Brady announced he has now received over 48 letters of no confidence in May.

Work and pensions secretary Amber Rudd said:
