Nicky Morgan has told Peston on Sunday that the next leader of the Tory party and prime minister must come from the Brexit camp.

Morgan considered running for the leadership but instead backed Michael Gove.

The education secretary said it was "important" that a candidate who wanted to leave the EU and had "top-flight Cabinet experience" replaced David Cameron.

"We are facing the one of the gravest times for our country probably since the 1940s," she added.
