Boris Johnson, the frontrunner to replace Theresa May as Britain's prime minister, needs to be braver and face the media, one of his main rivals said on Friday following accusations the former foreign secretary was avoiding scrutiny. Jeremy Hunt, Britain's foreign minister, said there needed to be a debate about Brexit and the leadership contenders' plans for leaving the European Union.

"We can only have that debate if our frontrunner in this campaign is a little bit braver in terms of getting out into the media, engaging in debates, engaging in the TV debate," Hunt told BBC radio. "If you want to be prime minister of the United Kingdom, you have to get out there and make your case. What would Churchill say if somebody who wants to be prime minister of the United Kingdom was hiding away from the media, not taking part in these big occasions."
