Sajid Javid to be new home secretary


Sajid Javid

Sajid Javid has been named as the new home secretary after Amber Rudd’s resignation.

Mr Javid, the son of a Pakistani bus driver whose family came to the UK in the 1960s, is currently Communities, Local Government and Housing Secretary.

Before that, the former investment banker and MP for Bromsgrove had been Business and Culture Secretaries.

Ms Rudd quit saying she had “inadvertently misled” MPs over what she knew about immigration targets.
