Andrea Leadsom was accused of acting “cowardly” by continuing supporting Theresa May’s Chequers plan by a Brexit-supporting LBC listener.

But, Ms Leadsom, a prominent Brexit campaigner, hit back - insisting the plan did deliver on Brexit and accused critics of "inventing new red lines".

The Cabinet minister, Iain Dale and the caller clashed multiple times during the turbulent call.

At one point, Nancy boomed: "You're letting us down and it is very, very cowardly."
