Former Brexit secretary Dominic Raab has been eliminated from the race for the UK Conservative Party leadership.

313 votes were counted in the second round of voting for the leadership, which saw Boris Johnson cement his runaway lead. The former foreign minister secured 126 votes from party members. 

Jeremy Hunt received 46 votes, while current Home Secretary Sajid Javid got 33 votes.

Rory Stewart survived the second-round ballot with 37 votes.

With just 30 votes, Mr Raab was eliminated from the contest.

Now the remaining candidates will face further votes to whittle down the contest to two, when Conservative members will decide who will become leader, and Britain's next prime minister.u
