The MP in charge of Brexit negotiations in the Channel Islands has been sacked as part of Theresa May's government reshuffle.

Rt Hon Sir Oliver Heald QC MP was the UK's Minister of State for Courts and Justice, and was tasked with giving a voice to the Crown Dependencies during Brexit talks.

He visited the islands on a number of occasions, and praised them for their "strength".

His replacement is expected to be announced soon.
