Boris Johnson is meeting the Queen at Balmoral to hand in his resignation as Liz Truss prepares to take over as prime minister and deliver a plan to address the energy crisis.

In his farewell speech outside No 10, the outgoing Prime Minister said his successor's administration will do "everything we can" to help people struggling with the cost-of-living crisis.
