LONDON (Reuters) - British business minister Andrea Leadsom said on Thursday she was leaving her role as part of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s ministerial reshuffle.

“It has been a real privilege to serve in government for the last six years ... I now look forward to focusing on my constituents,” Leadsom said on Twitter.

The government is due to announce her replacement later on Thursday.
