BROMSGROVE MP Sajid Javid has been named as the new Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport.
It comes after Maria Miller decidend to step down from the role following a row about her expenses.
The promotion is his third in just two years - in 2012 he was made the Econnomic Secretary to the Treasury and last year he became the Financial Secretary to the Treasury.
Mr Javid being given the role may come as a surprise to some people, given his financial background and the fact that some bookmakers were this morning offering odds of 33-1 on him replacing Ms Miller.
