A rather straightforward cabinet reshuffle turned into a day of surprises in Westminster.
We are drawing our live page to a close, but here are some of the highlights from a busy day:
- Sajid Javid resigns as chancellor after refusing to sack his advisors
- Rishi Sunak becomes the new inhabitant at No 11
- Tributes pour in for Julian Smith after he is fired as Northern Ireland secretary
- Other high profile MPs to lose their government jobs include Andrea Leadsom, Esther McVey and Theresa Villiers
- Penny Mordaunt is among those making a return to government from the backbenches
- Alok Sharma becomes business secretary and takes over COP26
Thanks for reading and have a good evening.
