North East Derbyshire MP submits letter of no confidence in Theresa May

Lee Rowley is the latest in a string of Conservative MPs to call for a change of leadership.

The Conservative MP for North East Derbyshire, Lee Rowley, has submitted a letter of no confidence in the leadership of Theresa May.

It comes after many of his party colleagues submitted similar letters calling for a change in leader, following the unveiling of the Prime Minister's draft Brexit deal.

Under Conservative rules, if 48 or more Tory MPs submit such a letter, a vote of confidence in Mrs May must be held.
