Rishi Sunak greeted Conservative Party members at an event in Ludlow, Shropshire, on Wednesday, 3 August, as he continued his campaign in the Tory leadership contest.

An email to Tory members said that their voting packs would arrive “a little later than we originally said... because we have taken some time to add some additional security to our ballot process.”
