Picture courtesy: BBC

There is a reshuffle in Boris Johnson's cabinet.

Dominic Raab is out as a foreign secretary but he has been given a new role as deputy PM. Mr Raab - who has faced heavy criticism for his handling of the aftermath of the fall of Afghanistan - is understood to have had a long conversation with Mr Johnson before his new roles were announced.

He will also replace Robert Buckland as justice secretary.

Gavin Williamson has been sacked as education secretary, as Mr Johnson makes sweeping changes to his Cabinet line-up.

Housing and Local Government Secretary Robert Jenrick is another early casualty of the reshuffle.

Priti Patel will remain as home secretary and Rishi Sunak keeps his job as chancellor
