Braverman sacked as home secretary

Suella Braverman has been sacked as home secretary.

The announcement comes after she wrote an article in the Times last week, in which she criticised "pro-Palestinian mobs" and said that the protest scenes were reminiscent of those seen in Northern Ireland.

In the article, she also criticised the Met Police for their "double standards" when policing protests. The article was not signed off by Downing Street and changes requested by Downing Street were not made.

Braverman was briefly home secretary under Liz Truss, but was forced to resign after breaking the ministerial code by sending an official document from her personal email.

She was then given the job back again by Rishi Sunak six days later.

James Cleverly, who was foreign secretary, has been appointed to replace her.

A reshuffle is underway and according to the BBC, David Cameron has been seen going into Downing Street.
