Anglia Late Edition reports on the latest Brexit plans from the government that led to two Cabinet resignations. Theresa May's long-awaited plan for Britain's future relationship with the EU has met immediate resistance from Brexiteers in her own party.

The ensuing mini reshuffle put a Suffolk MP in charge of the Health Service. Becoming the Health & Social Care Secretary is a major promotion for Matt Hancock, who has been the MP for West Suffolk for only eight years. He will have to deal with an NHS under severe pressure in its 70th year but he will have a funding boost of £20 billion to help.

He landed at Stansted airport in Essex on Thursday afternoon and various demonstrations have been planned around the country including in Cambridge and Luton.
