Meanwhile, in Downing Street, Rishi Sunak delivered his inaugural address as prime minister today. In his speech, Mr Sunak stated that he was appointed to replace Liz Truss in order to "correct" her mistakes.

The former chancellor lauded his predecessor's "restlessness" and her "noble aim" to boost UK economic growth while speaking outside Number 10.

"I want to pay tribute to my predecessor Liz Truss. She was not wrong to want to improve growth in this country. It is a noble aim. And I admired her restlessness to create change,"he said.

"But some mistakes were made — not born of ill will, or bad intentions. Quite the opposite, in fact. But mistakes, nonetheless. And I have been elected as leader of my party and your prime minister, in part to fix them."

Mr Sunak promised to keep the pledges stated in the manifesto and to bring the nation together not just through words but also through deeds.
