Boris Johnson has been ordered to appear in court over claims he lied when saying the UK gave the EU £350m a week.

The Tory leadership candidate has been accused of misconduct in public office after making the claim during the 2016 EU referendum campaign.

It is a private prosecution launched by Marcus Ball, who crowdfunded £200,000 for the case.

The preliminary hearing will take place at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.

District Judge Margot Coleman said the case would then be sent to the Crown Court for trial.
