Two more Surrey MPs have been given appointments in Theresa May's government.

In the prime minister's reshuffle since the General Election last Thursday, Guildford's Anne Milton has been appointed Minister of State for Education.

She had previously served as Conservative Deputy Chief Whip to the House of Commons since May 2015.

Dominic Raab who represents Esher and Walton is returns to the justice ministry as Minister of state at the Department of Justice.

His past experience includes a stint as Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Ministry of Justice from May 2015 to July 2016.

It brings to six the number of MPs in Surrey who have been given roles in the new government.

Four others are in the Cabinet - the most sensational of these is Surrey Heath's Michael Gove - who was appointed Environment Secretary.

He was kicked out of the Cabinet when Mrs May first came to power.

Mr Gove was a controversial figure when Education Secretary under David Cameron.

He then launched a leadership bid when Cameron stepped down, despite having backed rival Boris Johnson previously.

In other developments, South West Surrey MP Jeremy Hunt remains Health Secretary.

Phillip Hammond, Runnymede and Weybridge MP, is still Chancellor of the Exchequer.

Epsom and Ewell MP Chris Grayling remains Transport Secretary.
