Mr Johnson was rebuked by Theresa May on Tuesday for publicly calling for more money for the health service after Brexit.

Liz Kendall, MP for Leicester West, said: "You know this is all about Boris Johnson trying to get headlines because he still wants to be Prime Minister of this country.

"People know it is all about him and that is what, I feel, a lot of people in the NHS will feel aggrieved about".

The BBC understands Mr Johnson did not end up mentioning "specific" amounts of cash at Tuesday's cabinet meeting.

With three constituencies still to declare in the city, there's a way to go yet.

Could Labour benefit from higher Leicester turnout?

Tim Parker

BBC Radio Leicester political reporter

Turnout is up across Leicester.. but who will it benefit?

Labour will hope it's good news for them, particularly Liz Kendall who has the smallest majority of the three Leicester constituencies.

But has the Corbyn factor lost as many wavering Labour supporters as it's gained new, young voters?

It's all to play for here.
