Tories Take Part In TV Leadership Debate

The first TV debate between the Tory leadership hopefuls has been dominated by Brexit.

Dominic Raab was criticised for saying he'd consider suspending the UK Parliament to force through a no-deal departure.

The ex- Brexit secretary said he's the only Tory leadership contender who will stick to the end-of-October deadline "come what may".

Foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt said an extension might be needed though, if they're not quite ready.

While Rory Stewart said forcing a no-deal Brexit reminds him of a recent struggle taking out the bins.

An empty podium was left for frontrunner Boris Johnson, who didn't show up.

The next round of Conservative party voting is on Tuesday.
