Williamson sacked in Huawei scandal

Gavin Williamson, the defence secretary, has been sacked by Theresa May and replaced by Penny Mordaunt. He is accused of having leaked information from the National Security Council, concerning Huawei’s potential involvement in a future 5G network. It was discovered he had talked to a Telegraph editor after the meeting but adamantly denied involvement in the leak. Some MPs, especially from opposition parties, have called for a criminal investigation under the Official Secrets Act, however the PM has announced that this won’t happen.
