Suella Braverman will come out in support for Liz Truss after failing to make the next stage in the race to replace Boris Johnson, sources have told The Telegraph.

The Attorney General was knocked out of the contest today after failing to secure 30 votes from her fellow Conservative MPs.

Leadership rival Kemi Badenoch said she was “disappointed” that Ms Braverman would back Ms Truss.

Ms Badenoch told LBC: “I am disappointed. Suella and I are friends, I’m friends with Tom Tugendhat as well, Rishi and Liz were my senior ministers, so it’s all very close to home.

“We’re all friends, so every time someone supports one person there’s another person that’s been let down. But I’m in it to win it.

“I know people want to support the person that they think is most likely to give them a job, or who has been there the longest, that’s the easy thing to do, the tough thing to do is to take a risk and try something different.”

Meanwhile, leadership contender Tom Tugendhat suggested he would scrap the policy of privatising Channel 4 if he became prime minister.

He told LBC radio: “I don’t think it’s a good idea, there are many other priorities.” Mr Tugendhat also said he would not scrap the BBC licence fee.
