Full coverage of Andrea Leadsom's withdrawal from the Conservative leadership contest, plus analysis of Angela Eagle's bid to become Labour leader.

As Andrea Leadsom pulls out of the Conservative Leadership contest, we examine the political implications of the decision, how the process of Theresa May becoming the next Prime Minister will unfold, and hear from supporters of both women on what a future cabinet should look like.
Angela Eagle formally announced her intention to become Labour Leader, following days of speculation, and amidst continuing uncertainty over whether Jeremy Corbyn would have to be nominated by 51 MPs or MEPs in order to secure a place on the ballot. Barry Gardiner, a member of Mr Corbyn's cabinet tells us that he should be on the ballot nominations or not, and that he supports Labour's Election Coordinator Jon Trickett's call for a General Election.
Former Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Seema Malhotra, who resigned last week tells us that Angela Eagle is right person to lead a united Labour party into an election.
