PM switches Mitchell in reshuffle

David Cameron has moved International Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell to government chief whip, as he starts his first major reshuffle.

The prime minister is also expected to bring Liberal Democrat David Laws back as speculation mounts over the future of several cabinet members.

But the chancellor, home secretary and foreign secretary are all expected to keep their jobs.

The reshuffle comes amid growing Tory concern over the coalition, as Nick Robinson reports.
