Broxtowe MP Anna Soubry has resigned from her ministerial role in Government as Theresa May continues to shape her cabinet.

The outspoken MP had campaigned for Remain in the recent EU referendum, but new Prime Minister Theresa May has stated her desire to deliver the will of the British people by leaving the European Union.

Ms Soubry tweeted on Friday: “I tendered my resignation this morning. Looking forward to representing my constituents and long-standing views on the positive benefits of immigration and the EU.”

Ms Soubry, who was minister for small business, industry and enterprise, had the right to attend Mr Cameron’s Cabinet, and is the latest in a long line of MPs to resign from Government.
