    White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has quit, reportedly in protest at a shake-up of the communications team.

    Mr Spicer stepped down because he was unhappy with President Donald Trump’s appointment of a new communications director, reports the New York Times.

    Combative Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci has been picked for the role that Mr Spicer partially filled.

    Mr Spicer’s press briefings were a cable news hit, but he withdrew from camera in recent weeks.

    The shake-up comes as the White House faces inquiries into alleged Russian meddling in last year’s US presidential election and whether Mr Trump’s campaign team colluded with Moscow.
