Jeremy Hunt backs calls for Boris Johnson to answer questions following a police call out to his girlfriend’s home

Jeremy Hunt has said his Tory leadership rival Boris Johnson, should be prepared to “answer questions on everything.”

The comments come as pressure mounts on Mr Johnson to explain why police were called to the home he shares with his partner Carrie Symonds – amid reports of a heated argument.

A poll carried out since the incident suggests Mr Johnson’s lead among Conservative Party voters has dropped by more than half.
