Theresa may has this morning announced she is going to fight the upcoming no confidence vote after it has been confirmed 48 letters from MP’s have been received.

The contest will be staged between 6pm and 8pm this evening, when all 315 Conservative MPs will vote on whether they believe May should continue as leader of the party. To stay in power she will require 158 votes of support.

Sir Graham Brady, the chairman of the 1922 backbench committee, released a statement this morning confirming the threshold of 48 signatures – 15 per cent of the total number of Tory MPs – “has been exceeded”.
