Prime Minister Boris Johnson carried out a reshuffle of his cabinet on Wednesday, removing several key ministers including Gavin Williamson.

This is the second major reshuffle since Mr Johnson became leader of the Conservative party and took over as prime minister from Theresa May in July 2019. The last one took place in February 2020.

Some of the big moves included Liz Truss to foreign secretary, the Tories’ first woman in that role; Nadhim Zahawi moved from leading the vaccine rollout to education – at the expense of Mr Williamson; and Nadine Dorries stepped up from health minister to culture secretary.
