The UK’s new Prime Minister – Theresa May

Theresa May, the UK’s new Prime Minister vows to be ‘one nation’ Government that works for all not just the “privileged few”.

Speaking outside 10 Downing Street for the first time as Prime Minister and after being appointed by the Queen, she said it would be her mission to “build a better Britain”.

She promised to give people who were “just managing” and “working around the clock” more control over their lives.

Mrs May is the UK’s second female Prime Minister, after Margaret Thatcher.

Mrs May later began appointing Cabinet members, with Philip Hammond – Foreign Secretary under Mr Cameron – becoming Chancellor of the Exchequer and Boris Johnson becoming the new Foreign Secretary.

More members of the Cabinet will be appointed during the course of Thursday.
