Boris Johnson survives after winning by 63 votes but is left seriously weakened
The Metro says Boris Johnson has survived a confidence vote but emerges with his authority severely dented.
The prime minister won the ballot by 211-148, a victory which secures his place in Downing Street but by no means ends the political jeopardy his government has been plunged into.
His majority of 63 means he came closer to being ousted than Theresa May did in 2018, failing to surpass the 63% support she secured.
Tory rebels triggered a ballot on whether he should continue in Downing Street after months of scandal, with momentum picking up following the publication of the Sue Gray report.
