Contenders to replace Theresa May as Conservative leader have clashed over delivering Brexit during a TV debate. reports citing BBC.

The MPs differed over whether a new deal could be renegotiated with the EU, and the prospect of a no-deal Brexit.

Leadership hopefuls appeared before a studio audience at a debate hosted by Channel 4 News.

Boris Johnson did not take part, arguing that debates with several candidates "can be slightly cacophonous".

Four of the five candidates argued against closing down Parliament in order to push through a no-deal Brexit.

International Development Secretary Rory Stewart said it was a "deeply disturbing" option and Home Secretary Sajid Javid warned "you don't deliver democracy by trashing out democracy."

However ex-Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab refused to rule it out, saying "every time one of these candidates take an option away… we weaken our chances of getting the best deal."
