Boris Johnson has said the government can now “move on” following a “convincing” result in a confidence ballot on his leadership.

The prime minister won the no-confidence vote – triggered when 54 of his MPs demanded the contest – but the margin of 211 votes to 148 reveals more than 40 per cent of Tory MPs voted against Johnson.
