Brokenshire resigns as Northern Ireland Secretary

"We must also continue the work to deliver a Brexit that recognises Northern Ireland's unique circumstances and avoids a hard border on the island of Ireland while maintaining the economic and constitutional integrity of the United Kingdom".

Mrs Bradley is among a raft of ministerial changes announced during the Prime Minister's new year cabinet reshuffle.

"I very much look forward to working alongside you again when you are back to full health", she added.

Brokenshire, who has led government efforts to restore the devolved Northern Irish executive after power sharing collapsed past year, was stepping down ahead of major surgery in coming weeks, his spokesman said.

The UK's Northern Ireland minister has resigned, reportedly because of ill-health.

"In the course of negotiations, the SDLP has often disagreed with the position of his government but I have always found Mr Brokenshire to be personable, reasonable and, so far as possible, helpful. Not quite how I thought I'd mark my 50th birthday!"

However, a source close to the 50-year-old minister said he had chose to stand down because he was facing major surgery within the next couple of weeks.

"Since becoming Secretary of State in 2016, Mr Brokenshire had immersed himself fully in the role by dedicating long hours to trying to make progress".

In 2016 she was handed the role of Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport in Theresa May's cabinet, having previously served in the Government Whips' Office and as a Home Office minister.

"A key part of my role will be to help build a Northern Ireland that is fit for the future and works for everyone", she said.

He was elected at the 2005 general election to the now dissolved constituency of Hornchurch'.

Shadow health secretary Jon Ashworth said yesterday: "If she promotes this Health Secretary tomorrow it's a betrayal of those 75,000 people in the back of ambulances".
