This is our as-it-happened coverage of key news developments this morning, Monday, July 9.


Here are the main developments from this morning:

Brexit: Dominic Raab is appointed as the UK's new Brexit Secretary after the shock resignation of David Davis on Sunday evening. Davis had quit just days after PM Theresa May had claimed she secured senior ministers' approval for a new deal on how the UK was going to leave the Brussels club.

Novichok death: A woman exposed to the same nerve agent that hospitalised Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter has died, it's emerged. Police announced the death of Dawn Sturgess and launched a murder probe. They had been trying to work out how she and a 45-year-old man had come into contact with Novichok.

Thailand cave rescue: A fifth boy was rescued on Monday after four others were brought to safety on Sunday. The boys and their football coach were trapped in the cave system on June 23 after heavy rains.

This is how our coverage evolved over the morning.
