Theresa May looks set to be crowned Prime Minister in UK

Conservative leadership candidate Andrea Leadsom has announced she is pulling out of the race to replace David Cameron as prime minister.

The energy minister has paved the way for Home Secretary Theresa May, as the only remaining candidate, to be named Tory leader and PM as early as today.

However, it was not immediately clear whether Conservative rules would require the party’s 1922 Committee to seek another contender to appear on the ballot paper alongside Mrs May for a planned vote of the party’s 150,000 members.
