Karen Bradley reappointed as culture secretary

Karen Bradley has been reappointed as culture secretary in Theresa May's reshuffled cabinet. 

Bradley (pictured) retained her seat as MP for Staffordshire Moorlands for a third time in last week's General Election with a slightly increased majority of just over 10,800 votes. 

A former chartered accountant, Bradley was elected to parliament back in 2010 and succeeded John Whittingdale as culture secretary last July. 

No confirmation has yet been given on whether Matt Hancock is to continue as culture minister.
