UK Cabinet meets after reshuffle

The UK’s new Cabinet will meet for the first time this morning after yesterday’s dramatic reshuffle.

Yesterday Prime Minister Boris Johnson sacked several high profile Conservatives, including Esther McVey and Andrea Leadsom.

Sajid Javid resigned after Johnson asked him to sack all of his advisers in an attempt by No 10 to take control of the Treasury.

Reports suggest that today’s Cabinet meeting will be used to approve new proposals for a points-based immigration system.
