Rishi Sunak has been forced to carry out a mini-reshuffle after two ministers resigned from the Government today. The Skills Minister Robert Halfon unexpectedly quit his job this afternoon and said he will stand down as MP for Harlow at the general election.

It was also the last day in the office for Armed Forces Minister James Heappey. He had already said he planned not to stand in the next Election.
