Boris Johnson 'will keep going' after 'tough' by-election results

Boris Johnson has vowed to "reflect on where voters are" after the Conservatives suffered a devastating double by-election defeat, which triggered the resignation of Party Chair Oliver Dowden. The prime minister admitted the results had been "tough" and blamed the cost-of-living crisis for voters' discontent, saying: "We've got to recognise that there's more that we can do and we certainly will. We will keep going addressing the concerns of people until we get through this patch.".
