British Health Minister Sajid Javid announced his resignation on Tuesday, saying he no longer had confidence in Prime Minister Boris Johnson after a series of scandals tainted the government.

I have spoken to the Prime Minister to tender my resignation as Secretary of State for Health & Social Care.

It has been an enormous privilege to serve in this role, but I regret that I can no longer continue in good conscience.

British Finance Minister Rishi Sunak also announced his resignation at the same time.
