Corby MP Tom Pursglove has been given a promotion to a joint role with the Home Office and the Ministry of Justice.

He has previously served Boris Johnson’s government as an assistant whip.

His new position is the lowest of three tiers of government minister, but will be regarded as a tough gig for the 32-year-old who is from Wellingborough and went to Sir Christopher Hatton School.

He tweeted this afternoon: “Hugely honoured to be asked by @BorisJohnson to join @UKHomeOffice and @MoJGovUK. So much important work to do and no time to waste! Looking forward to working with @PritiPatel, @DominicRaab and new ministerial colleagues."
