Boris Johnson critic Sir Alan Duncan quits Government

Sir Alan Duncan quit as a Foreign Office minister ahead of Mr Johnson’s expected victory in the Tory leadership contest.

He warned that Brexit had cast a “dark cloud” over the country.

In a sign of the difficulties Tory leadership favourite Mr Johnson could face in uniting a bitterly divided party, Sir Alan Duncan resigned from the Foreign Office before the new prime minister takes office.

Mr Johnson is widely expected to defeat Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt to become the Tory leader when the result of the contest is announced on Tuesday.
