Breaking news: Spicer resigns as White House press secretary

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has quit, reportedly because of objections over the appointment of new White House communication director New York financier Anthony Scaramucci.

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

Mr Spicer's press briefings were a cable news hit, due to his style but he withdrew from camera in recent weeks.

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

The New York Times reports that Mr Spicer "vehemently" disagreed with the appointment of Mr Scaramucci, which he believed to be a "major mistake"
