British Prime Minister Theresa May has made a last minute plea for stability with her leadership set to undergo its biggest challenge this morning.

Theo Usherwood, political editor at LBC, told Ross and John “she will survive this confidence motion”.

But he doesn’t expect Ms May to see out her term.
