Here is the result of the first round of MPs’ voting on the next Conservative leader:

May: 165

Leadsom: 66

Gove: 48

Crabb: 34

Fox: 16

Liam Fox is therefore eliminated. We don’t yet know whether any other candidates intend to withdraw, or whether all four will proceed to the second round of voting on Thursday.
