Tory leadership candidates are heading to the Isle of Wight this weekend.

Liz Truss will be in Newport on Friday afternoon to meet IW Conservative Association members while her rival Rishi Sunak will be in Sandown Bay the following day from noon onwards.

No exact timings or venues are being given to members at this point for security reasons.

In a letter to members seen by the Isle of Wight County Press, Isle of Wight Conservative Association chairman David Pugh, he says: "We hope that you are able to join us for both events. 

"Many Conservative Party members have not yet decided who to vote for, and we would certainly encourage you to hear from both candidates before deciding how to vote.

"We will also be using the occasions to press both Liz and Rishi on specific issues relating to the Island."

Members are being asked to register their interest in attending.

Mr Pugh has declined to say who he is supporting in the race, due to his role as chairman and organiser of the visits.

Isle of Wight MP Bob Seely this week came out in favour of Liz Truss but Tory group leader on the Isle of Wight Council, Joe Robertson, said he was voting for Rishi Sunak.
