Dominic Raab has been announced as his replacement

Leave supporter Dominic Raab has been appointed as the new UK Brexit secretary.

He replaces David Davis who quit last night saying the government's policy towards negotiations with the EU gives away too much too quickly.

He wrote to the British Prime Minister warning that her plan for Brexit was 'unworkable'. 
He says it looks less and less likely that Britain is going to leave the single market and customs union.

Mr Davis's junior ministers, Steve Baker and Suella Braverman, have also resigned.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar says he's looking forward to examining the detail of the plan in a White Paper later this week.

Meanwhile Tanaiste Simon Coveney has welcomed what he's called a softening of the UK's approach.
