Tory leadership: Gove becomes eighth candidate to enter race

Michael Gove has said he will enter the race for Tory leader, challenging his former Vote Leave ally Boris Johnson.

It means the two figureheads of the official Leave campaign will battle for the right to steer the Brexit process to a conclusion.

They previously clashed during the 2016 leadership contest, won by Theresa May.

So far, a total of eight candidates have announced they are standing for leader since Mrs May said she would resign on 7 June.
