New Prime Minister Theresa May is beginning her first full day in 10 Downing Street, after wasting no time in forming her new government.

In a surprise move, the controversial and charismatic ‘Brexit’ campaigner Boris Johnson is named as the new foreign secretary.

Philip Hammond was named as the new Chancellor within an hour of her coronation, while new face Amber Rudd is the next Home Secretary, and Eurosceptic stalwart David Davis is the new ‘Brexit’ secretary.

Earlier in the day Mr Cameron gave his final speech as PM outside Number 10, describing the job as ‘the greatest honour’ of his life. And the youngest PM for a century was given a standing ovation by Conservative in his final Prime Minister’s Questions in the House of Commons, before tendering his resignation to the Queen.

While posing for photos outside her new home with her husband Phillip, Mrs May also pays tribute to her predecessor, describing him as ‘a great modern Prime Minister’.
