Sir Kim Darroch has resigned as the UK’s ambassador to the US amid a row over leaked memos that were critical of Donald Trump.
Sir Kim said the furore over the messages, in which he called the US president “inept”, was “making it impossible for me to carry out my role as I would like”.
According to Sky News, Sir Kim “decided the game was up” when Boris Johnson refused to guarantee that he would stay in position if he became prime minister.
Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has expressed deep sadness at the resignation of Darroch as the British Ambassador to the USA.
