With Penny Mordaunt, his preferred candidate, now out of the running, Bob Seely has a choice to make over who he will give his member's vote to in the final poll for the new Conservative leader.

Today, Portsmouth North MP Penny Mordaunt came third and was eliminated from the final MPs' vote for the new leader.

Isle of Wight MP Mr Seely had previously backed her.

When she announced her candidacy in June, Bob said she knew how to win and had visited the Isle of Wight in March.

But who will he be backing in the final between former chancellor Rishi Sunak and Foreign Secretary Liz Truss?

Bob told the Isle of Wight County Press tonight: " I genuinely don’t know and am thinking through things."

Rishi Sunak got 137 votes, Liz Truss 113 and Penny Mordaunt 105 in today's vote.

The final two will face a ballot of 160,000 Tory Party members, with the result due on September 5.
