The energy minister and leading Leave campaigner, Andrea Leadsom, responded to accusations of hypocrisy, made in the Mail on Sunday, which referred to a speech she gave in 2013 - to the Hansard Society - warning about the dangers of leaving the EU.

Speaking to Andrew Marr, she rejected the accusations of hypocrisy, and said she had argued for radical change of the European Union.

On her bid to be the next Conservative leader and prime minister, she said: "The next person to lead this country has to somebody who believes in the opportunity of leaving the EU."
