Jeremy Hunt 'feeling positive' on day of Tory leadership announcement

Conservative Party leadership contender Jeremy Hunt leaves Lancaster House, London.

Britain will learn who its next prime minister will be on Tuesday as the result of a Tory leadership contest dominated by Boris Johnson is announced.

Mr Johnson is clear favourite to take the crown over his run-off rival, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt.

A Johnson victory could spark more Government resignations.

Ministers opposed to his “do or die” pledge to pull the UK out of the EU on October 31, even if there is no deal in place, could exit before Theresa May formally gives up the premiership on Wednesday afternoon.

The crippling effect of coronavirus within communities

Data obtained by ITV News has revealed the crippling impact coronavirus is likely to have on towns and cities across the UK. With the full winding down of the furlough scheme by October, more than seven per cent of the UK's workforce could be unemployed by the end of the year, according to the Bank of England. But forecasts by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation predict the potential peak unemployment rate of up to 21% in some areas across the country by the end of 2020. According to the organisation, the likeliest hardest hit areas include coastal towns, traditional Labour voting areas of the West Midlands and Northern England and suburban London boroughs.
