Amber Rudd tells Boris Johnson to stand...and applaud May during conference speech

Amber Rudd told Boris Johnson to give Theresa May a standing ovation as she coughed and spluttered her way through her Tory Party Conference speech.

The Prime Minister had to be handed a cough sweet by Chancellor Phil Hammond during her speech because she couldn’t stop choking – in what appears to be a beautiful symbol of her time in office.

Still, this is the first display of Cabinet unity May has seen for a while.
