Kemi Badenoch has been eliminated from the Conservative Party leadership race.
The Tory MP becomes the latest candidate to get knocked out after Tom Tugendhat went yesterday.
It leaves just three left in the race, with Rishi Sunak in pole position.
Most commentators believe Liz Truss has benefitted most from the latest round, picking up an extra 15 votes.
She is widely expected to absorb several additional endorsements from the Badenoch camp.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
