Boris Johnson, one of the most controversial politicians of modern times, has taken over as the UK's prime minister from Theresa May. He's wasted no time in putting his stamp on government. No fewer than 17 ministers have left the cabinet, making way for a team with much stronger Brexit credentials, including Dominic Raab as Foreign Secretary and Priti Patel as Home Secretary. Mr Johnson has also repeated his pledge to take the UK out of the European Union by the 31st of October.

The BBC’s political editor Laura Kuenssberg and Deputy Political Editor John Pienaar give their take on the day’s events with Huw Edwards presenting live from Downing Street.
