The five remaining Conservative leadership candidates were asked if they would sit down with Vladimir Putin at the G20 during the latest round of ITV debates.

Penny Mordaunt said: "Not under current circumstances."

Tom Tugendhat said "no," adding "sitting down with Vladimir Putin is not the right answer now."

Kemi Badenoch said: "No, I wouldn't either. It hasn't worked for all the people before, I wouldn't waste my time."

Liz Truss said: "I would go there and call Putin out."

Rishi Sunak also said he wouldn't.
