RISHI Sunak has been accused of misleading Tory voters over claims that he flew back from a US trip last year to stop lockdown.

Sunak, who is running against Liz Truss in the Tory leadership race made the remarks on LBC yesterday.  

He said the UK was “hours away from a press conference” announcing the measures due to the spread of the Omicron variant and claimed he “fought very hard against the system” to stop the lockdown being introduced.
