Andrea Leadsom has resigned from her Cabinet position as the Leader of the House of Commons, saying that she can no longer support the Government’s Brexit position.

In a letter to Theresa May, the Prime Minister, she wrote:

“I stayed in cabinet to shape and fight for Brexit. There have been some uncomfortable compromises along the way, but you have had my determined support and loyalty in your efforts to deliver Brexit as our shared goal. I no longer believe that our approach will deliver on the referendum result.”
