KINVER'S MP Gavin Williamson has pledged his "full support" for Prime Minister Theresa May who today faces a challenge to her leadership.

The South Staffordshire MP, the Government's Defence Secretary - who has been tipped as a potential Conservative Party leader of the future, took to Twitter to make his position clear.

He said: "The Prime Minister has my full support.

"She works relentlessly hard for our country and is the best person to make sure we leave the EU on 29 March and continue to deliver our domestic agenda."

MPs will vote from 6pm tonight on whether to issue a vote of no confidence to Mrs May.
