Britain's Suella Braverman has left her job as the home secretary of the country, adding to the turmoil surrounding Prime Minister Liz Truss's six-week premiership.

BBC and Reuters confirmed about her resignation on Wednesday.

Reuters says Braverman's departure would mark the second of Truss's most senior ministers to be replaced in less than a week, after she sacked her finance minister Kwasi Kwarteng on Friday.

The Guardian cited sources saying her departure was "at the behest" of Kwarteng's replacement Jeremy Hunt. Former transport minister Grant Shapps is being tipped to replace her, the newspaper said.

The Home Office declined to comment on the reports.
