Following a meeting Sir Graham Brady, chairman of the powerful 1922 Committeeof Tory backbenchers, to discuss her future following “frank” talks between senior ministers and the beleaguered premier, May has announced she will step down as Conservative Party leader on 7 June

Parliament has rejected Mrs May's withdrawal agreement three times, but another vote is expected on the 4th, just three days before May resigns.
Speaking outside Downing Street, May said: "It is and will always remain a matter of deep regret to me that I have not been able to deliver Brexit," before turning on the tears for the camera.
Mrs May fired the starting gun on a Tory leadership race when she announced her departure as prime minister with Boris Johnson the bookies favourite to take over.
Several other potential candidates have already set out their stalls in previous weeks as Mrs May's tenure hung in the balance.
