    UK's finance and health ministers resigned on Tuesday, in what looked to be a final blow for Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

    Britain's finance and health ministers resigned on Tuesday, in what looked to be a final blow for Prime Minister Boris Johnson who had tried to apologise for the latest scandal involving a sexual misconduct complaint over one of his ministers.

    Moments later, finance minister Rishi Sunak also announced he was quitting.
