A total of eleven Conservative MPs have officially launched campaigns to replace Boris Johnson as Prime Minister.

In various campaign videos from the likes of Tom Tugendhat, Sajid Javid, Suella Braverman, and Rishi Sunak we have seen promises around tax cuts, delivering Brexit and tackling immigration.

On Monday Environment Secretary George Eustice said he expected the number of candidates to be whittled down to just two within a fortnight.

The Evening Standard’s Deputy Political Editor David Bond discusses his ‘top 5’ candidates; those most likely to become our new PM, and the most important policies during their campaigning.

Plus we speak with Tory MP for the Isle of Wight Bob Seely about his views on the candidates, who he believes are most likely to win, and what the conservative party is looking for in a new leader.
