Braintree MP James Cleverly has been appointed Deputy Chairman of the Conservatives.
He’s taken the role as part of Prime Minister Theresa May’s reshuffle – and says he’s “looking forward to working with new Chairman Brandon Lewis”.
The Tories initially announced the Chairman job had gone to Chris Grayling.
Their official Twitter account congratulated the transport secretary, seconds before deleting the tweet.
Northern Ireland Secretary James Brokenshire has resigned for health reasons.
