The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Rishi Sunak, has sacked his Home Secretary, Suella Braverman, while appointing former Prime Minister, David Cameron into his cabinet as Foreign Secretary.
Mrs Braverman was accused of stoking tension ahead of protests in London.
James Cleverly has been announced as her replacement, with former prime minister David Cameron unexpectedly replacing him as foreign secretary.
She said serving as home secretary was “the greatest privilege of my life”.
Mrs Braverman’s sacking kickstarts a major cabinet reshuffle by Rishi Sunak as he reshapes his top team ahead of next week’s Autumn Statement.
The prime minister’s official spokesman said: “This reshuffle will give the prime minister a united team to deliver the change this country needs for the long term.”
Mr Cameron has been out of Parliament since he stood down as prime minister in 2016 and has been given a seat in the House of Lords to enable him to take up his new position.
He has now become “Lord Cameron”.
