Sir Keir Starmer has sacked his shadow chancellor in a shake-up of his team after poor election results in England.

Anneliese Dodds will now become the Labour Party's chair - replacing deputy leader Angela Rayner, whom Sir Keir fired from the role on Saturday.

Ms Rayner will instead replace Rachel Reeves in shadowing Michael Gove at the Cabinet Office, as Ms Reeves is promoted to the shadow chancellor role.

The Labour leader will chair a meeting of his revamped frontbench team later.

In a statement, Sir Keir added the party "must change" in response to challenges posed by the Covid pandemic, and learn from areas where it lost.

He said: "I look forward to working with our refreshed and renewed team to take on that challenge, deliver that change and build the ambitious programme that will deliver the next Labour government."
