Gove declines to reveal who he will back for PM

Michael Gove has declined to reveal which side he will be backing in the race between Theresa May or Andrea Leadsom to become the next prime minister.

The justice secretary, who was knocked out of the leadership race by a ballot of Conservative MPs, gave no answer when asked which of the two remaining candidates he would endorse.

He said there were "no regrets" about standing for leadership, adding: "I'm looking forward to what I hope will be a good debate between two excellent candidates."
