Sky News reports that Boris Johnson announced that he will run to be leader of the Conservative Party.

In a conference in Manchester, the former foreign secretary said that he would enter the race to succeed Theresa May if a vacancy arises.

Theresa May has promised to step down if parliament ratifies her Brexit deal.

But she is refusing to name a departure date until then.

May is immune to ousting by Tory MPs until December 2019 after winning a vote of confidence last year.
