Sajid Javid has been knocked out of the Tory leadership race, leaving three contenders vying for the job and to be the next prime minister.

Axar.az reports citing BBC.

The home secretary received 34 votes, coming behind Jeremy Hunt with 59.

Michael Gove received 61 votes, leapfrogging Mr Hunt to gain second place; while frontrunner Boris Johnson got 157 votes from MPs.

MPs are now voting in a fifth ballot to select the two candidates who will go through to a party membership vote.

The vote will close at 17:30 BST and the result is due at about 18:00.

The remaining two MPs will compete in a run-off of the party's 160,000 or so members, and the winner will be announced in the week of 22 July.
