Keir Starmer’s reshuffle of the shadow cabinet is turning out to be pretty substantial. Already, Angela Rayner and Lisa Nandy have been given new roles – now there’s another major post being shook up.

Steve Reed has been replaced by Shabana Mahmood as shadow justice secretary. Mahmood has been serving as Labour’s national campaign coordinator.

Pat McFadden is taking over Mahmood’s previous role. He’s also going to be taking on Rayner’s previous gig as shadow chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster.

Steve Reed has been moved over to shadow environment secretary, following Jim McMahon’s resignation earlier today.
