WATCH: Therese Coffey replaces Amber Rudd in Cabinet as Work and Pensions Secretary
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has replaced Amber Rudd only hours after she stunned Westminster by quitting the Cabinet and the Tory Party. Therese Coffey MP, an environment minister and MP for Suffolk Coastal, has been promoted to Work and Pensions Secretary.
Elected in 2010, Ms Coffey is a former deputy Commons leader and was appointed as environment minister by Theresa May. The Liverpool FC fan backed Remain during the EU referendum in 2016 and voted against legalising gay marriage in 2013.
