Corker of a scoop from @denis_campbell  this: Boris Johnson plans radical shake-up of NHS in bid to regain more direct control

Understand Jeremy Corbyn is among the leftwing Labour MPs currently attending a meeting with Keir Starmer to raise concerns about RLB's sacking.

Blistering from @RhonddaBryant:  "At a moment of international crisis, the biggest idea the prime minister has is that he should change the letter head from the Foreign Office. This isn't a statement on Global Britain, it's a statement from Little England."

That’s three former PMs - Brown, Cameron and now Blair - who have condemned today’s announcement:

Downing Street circling the wagons: “Robert Jenrick has set out his account in public and to parliament including publishing the relevant documentation, and in the light of this account, the prime minister considers the matter closed.”

Starmer hired a new director of comms, yes - but SM was still on the payroll, and remained an executive director of the party.

NEW - Sunak announces an "eat out to help out" voucher scheme - will give 50% off for people eating out Monday to Wednesday, to a maximum of £10 per person.

NEW - the PM has authorised a “compensation payment” of almost £250k into Mark Sedwill’s pension pot.
