Boris Johnson has been banned from running for his old seat of Henley and will have to contest the Labour target seat of Uxbridge and South Ruislip.
Why it matters
This is significant because it means Boris Johnson will have to fight for his place in the Commons and face the humiliation of being turfed out if rival Danny Beales is successful.
What the papers say
The Mirror and The Telegraph both report that Boris Johnson has been banned from running for his old seat of Henley, while politics.co.uk and Sky News do not mention this development.
How we got here
Boris Johnson represented the Oxfordshire constituency of Henley from 2001 until 2008, when he left the Commons to become the Mayor of London. His current seat of Uxbridge and South Ruislip is now highly vulnerable to Labour.
