Boris Johnson is set to become the new Prime Minister.

He is set to replace Theresa May in Downing Street after winning the Conservative Party leadership contest against Jeremy Hunt.

He won by a massive margin, getting 92,153 votes compared to Hunt's 46,656.

The result of the leadership contest was announced at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre in Westminster.

A number of cabinet ministers - including Anne Milton, Alan Duncan, Philip Hammond, Rory Stewart and David Gauke - have resigned or said they will resign from the cabinet instead of serving under a Johnson leadership because of his plans to carry out a no-deal Brexit.

Theresa May announced her plans to resign earlier this year. Following Johnson winning the leadership contest, May tweeted her support for the incoming Prime Minister.

She said: "Many congratulations to @BorisJohnson on being elected leader of @Conservatives - we now need to work together to deliver a Brexit that works for the whole UK and to keep Jeremy Corbyn out of government. You will have my full support from the back benches."
