Portsmouth South candidate and Brexiteer Donna Jones tweeted that the article is "Not true!"

The News earlier claimed that former Defence Secretary, Penny Mordaunt and Jones "want an alliance!"

The paper said "the pair are considering a ‘joint strategy’ on a potential campaign, which will see Ms Mordaunt battling to keep her Portsmouth North seat and Councillor Jones fighting to overthrow Labour’s Stephen Morgan in Portsmouth South."
