Boris Johnson is to stand down as Conservative Party leader after losing the support of his ministers and MPs, the BBC understands.

A Conservative leadership contest will take place this summer and a new prime minister will be in place in time for the party conference in October.

He had vowed to “keep going” following a wave of resignations from the government over his leadership.

But was urged to stand down by senior members of his cabinet, including newly-appointed chancellor Nadhim Zahawi.
