Streatham’s MP has accused Boris Johnson of lying in his speech today

Chuka Umunna says his claims that he never spoke about Turkey during the 2016 referendum campaign were untrue.

A letter by the former Foreign Secretary written days before the referendum quickly came to light on social media.

In it, the Tory backbencher said the only way of avoiding a common border with Turkey was to vote leave.

His speech today is considered by many to be a potential Conservative party leadership bid.
