Boris Johnson is defying calls to resign, as he attempts to face down a growing mutiny among his cabinet.

Home Secretary Priti Patel, a former close ally, has joined a group of rebel ministers who are urging the PM to stand down. But he has defied the growing calls for him to quit, saying it would not be "responsible" for him to go.

He told MPs it would not be right for him to "walk away" amid economic pressures and the war in Ukraine. Under repeated questioning by senior MPs on the Commons Liaison Committee, he ruled out calling a snap general election, saying the earliest date he can see for one is 2024.

A Downing Street source rejected speculation the PM would announce his resignation in Downing Street later.
