The leadership campaign frontrunner, who is up against the likes of Michael Gove, Jeremy Hunt and Dominic Raab, has claimed he would refuse to pay the promised £39bn to the European Union unless better Brexit terms are on offer. He added that he would step up preparations to counter no-deal "disruption", and told the Sunday Times that he could defeat the twin threat posed by the Brexit Party and Labour leaders.

Mr Gove, 51, insisted his past mistakes should not be held against him as he battles to replace Theresa May as prime minister.
