Andrea Leadsom resigns from the Government

Commons Leader Andrea Leadsom has resigned from the Government with a "heavy heart", saying she no longer believes its Brexit approach will deliver on the referendum result. Mrs Leadsom said she was "proud" to have served in Theresa May's Government since 2016, and had stayed in the Cabinet to "shape and fight for Brexit" despite some "uncomfortable compromises along the way".
