Priti Patel has sided with a delegation of Cabinet ministers urging Boris Johnson to leave Downing Street, it has been reported.

New Chancellor Nadhim Zahawi was also among the group, which included other once-loyal allies Grant Shapps and Brandon Lewis, calling for the Prime Minister’s resignation.

Ms Patel, one of Mr Johnson’s most ardent supporters, joined them in Number 10 to tell the Prime Minister his position was untenable without the backing of Parliament Party, The Times reports.

Seventeen ministers and a number of ministerial assistants resigned as Mr Johnson’s authority waned in a dramatic 24 hours at Westminster.
