  1. Boris Johnson to chair first cabinet on Thursday

    That finishes our coverage of Boris Johnson’s first day as prime minister.

    It came with the biggest ever clear out of cabinet without a change of party in power.

    BBC political editor Laura Kuensberg said it was “not a reshuffle it’s a new government”.

    Tomorrow, Mr Johnson chairs his first cabinet meeting and faces the House of Commons. And of course we'll bring you full coverage of that across the BBC.

    Good night!

  5. EU 'waiting for substance'

    BBC News

    EU leaders have heard a lot of slogans from Boris Johnson and "now await substance", the BBC's Europe editor Katya Adler says.

    Diplomats were "listening with one ear" to Mr Johnson's first speech as prime minister, since they saw it as a "rallying cry" aimed at the UK's domestic audience, she said.

    Our editor said one EU diplomat told her he did not like the “bullying tone” of Mr Johnson.

    But she said they were not going to “rush to the cameras tonight to say so”.

  12. Who is Rishi Sunak?

    A little more about Rishi Sunak, who has been given the low-profile but strategically important job of number two at the Treasury.

    The 38-year old inherited William Hague's seat in Richmond, North Yorkshire, after the former party leader stepped down in 2015.

    He is a Brexiteer and, before today's promotion, was a junior minister in the housing department.

    He will play a pivotal role in the government's spending review due this autumn. He is married with two daughters.
