Urgent statement to be made on future of Liz Truss

A statement is due in just over 10 minutes' time at around 1.30pm, on the future of Liz Truss as leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister.

Liz Truss has been meeting with the 1922 Committee chairman this afternoon. A convoy of black cars flanked by police motorbikes sped past the back entrance of No 10 just after 1pm.

The cavalcade drove by while Prime Minister Liz Truss holds talks inside with 1922 Committee chairman Sir Graham Brady.

Therese Coffeey, deputy PM, and Tory Chairman, Jake Berry, are also in Downing Street. Conservative Party chairman Jake Berry has arrived in Downing Street.

He was driven straight to the door of No 10 and didn't turn to face the cluster of press as he went inside.

A Downing Street source said the PM invited Sir Graham Brady to No 10 as part of a “taking the temperature” exercise in an attempt to gauge the mood of Tory MPs.
