  • Northern Ireland secretary James Brokenshire resigns from cabinet over ill-health

He was seen as a crucial minister at Stormont where the devolved Northern Ireland assembly is now suspended following a fall-out between the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) and the pro-republican Sinn Fein.

Why did James Brokenshire resign from the Cabinet?

In a letter to the Prime Minister Mr Brokenshire revealed that he requires surgery for a lung condition.

May, Mr. Brokenshire stated in part: "As you know, over recent weeks I have been undergoing a number of medical tests on my lungs". Mr Brokenshire said in a statement.

There was an "urgent need" to restart stalled talks on the restoration of devolved government, he said.

The unexpected development will be regretted by the Government.

"In addition, Minister Bradley will have to grapple with the swift development of a new Northern Ireland budget which will restore NI's public finances to a more sustainable footing". The power-sharing government was set up as a result of the 1998 Good Friday agreement, which brought to an end three decades of mostly sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland that claimed the lives of 3,500 people.

"His unwavering commitment - in public and in private - over the previous year to securing the effective operation of the devolved power-sharing institutions in Belfast has been hugely important", he said. If it is, it will be a testament to the quiet, understated but hugely valuable work of James Brokenshire.

Brokenshire, 50, said in a resignation letter to Theresa May that his health issues won't allow him to focus on his duties.

Mrs Bradley, MP for Staffordshire Moorlands, was formerly in the Department of Culture, Media and Sport and is considered a close ally of Prime Minister Theresa May.

All ministers being appointed to posts in the Cabinet or having their existing positions confirmed are due to go to Downing Street to speak with Mrs May over the course of the day. "I trust James will have the surgery he needs and will make a full recovery", Arlene Foster, the Democratic Unionist Party Leader, said.
