Tory leadership hopeful Liz Truss said she would have liked Boris Johnson to continue as Prime Minister despite promising to tear up the economic plans he presided over.

The Foreign Secretary insisted her plan for an emergency budget to reverse the national insurance rise, scrap the planned corporation tax increase and suspend the green levies on energy bills was "not a gamble" and would not drive up inflation further.
