The BBC also said Boris Johnson would stay as Britain's foreign minister, Amber Rudd would continue as interior minister while the Sun newspaper said David Davis would remain in charge of the government's Brexit department.

Defence secretary Michael Fallon is also expected to keep his job, the Sun reported.
