Liz Truss conducted a “near-total purge” of Rishi Sunak’s supporters in yesterday’s Cabinet reshuffle, says the BBC’s Chris Mason. It is the most diverse line-up in history, with none of the top jobs held by a white man: Kwasi Kwarteng is chancellor, Suella Braverman home secretary and James Cleverly foreign secretary.

The new PM is expected to unveil a £150bn energy support package tomorrow, which will include freezing household bills at around £2,500 a year.
