Chancellor Philip Hammond announces he will resign if Boris Johnson becomes PM

Chancellor Philip Hammond has become the second Cabinet minister to announce they will quit the Government if Boris Johnson becomes prime minister. Mr Hammond, who has been in Number 11 for three years, has been a vocal critic of a no-deal Brexit – something the Tory leadership frontrunner has vowed to do if he cannot secure changes to the Withdrawal Agreement.
