Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn came under fire in equal measure during tonight's leadership debate, as their political rivals slammed the Labour and Tory leaders for refusing to take part.

Mr Corbyn issued a direct challenge to the Prime Minister to take part in a debate during an ITV News Facebook Live Q&A session with voters on Monday.
She added: 'Today she threatened again to walk away from any deal, and that would be an economic catastrophe'. "That would be an economic catastrophe". On Thursday, she published the Conservative Party's campaign platform, spelling out the approach to the divorce that she wants voters to endorse. "The Brexit negotiations between Brussels and London over these next few months will lead to outcomes that none of us can predict for the time being".
'That means that at the end you should have the final say'.
The Liberal Democrat leader also referred to Mr Nuttall as an "ambassador" for Mrs May for pushing for a "calamitous extreme Brexit".
In her opening statement, Green leader Caroline Lucas said: "Never in my lifetime has our future felt so uncertain".
Plaid Cymru's Leanne Wood, the Green Party's Caroline Lucas and Tim Farron, leader of the Liberal Democrats, were equally scathing as they derided Tory policies unchallenged.
Mrs May has warned that the threat of a second referendum would tie her hands at the negotiating table in Brussels and leave Britain with a worse deal.
"We're at risk of trade deals which would see our health service privatized, our agriculture sector decimated by cheap foreign imports and Wales drained of any power", Wood said.
Ms Sturgeon jokingly described the Ukip chief as a "spokesperson" for the Prime Minister as she attempted to paint the Tories as careering towards an economically unsafe form of leaving the EU.
Mr Nuttall insisted Ukip still has a role to play, adding: "I don't believe that she (Theresa May) will get the best deal possible for Britain, I believe she will begin to backslide".
"She thinks she owns our country, owns our future and owns our children's future", he said. To make matters worse, he then repeated the error later on. Not just once, but twice.
