LIAM Fox has been appointed as Secretary of State for International Trade in Theresa May's new Cabinet.

Dr Liam Fox, a prominent Brexiteer, will be the Minister for International Trade as Theresa May announces her new Cabinet.

The MP for North Somerset was in the running himself to be the new Prime Minister but fell at an early stage because of a lack of support from fellow MPs.

Dr Fox is served as Defence Secretary in the Coalition government.

He was forced to quit the Cabinet in 2011 after giving his friend Adam Werritty improper access to the Ministry of Defence but still holds a lot of sway.

The new Prime Minister of the UK will continue to appoint positions to her Cabinet today.

It is thought that she may appoint a stream of women in the next round of appointments.

Mrs May herself had sided with Cameron in trying to keep Britain inside the EU, so needed to reach out to the winning Leave side in order to heal divisions in the ruling party and show her commitment to respecting the popular vote.

"Brexit means Brexit" has quickly become her new mantra, foreign media reports.
