A Government minister has returned to his Whitehall office after the election – only to find himself locked out of the building and his belongings packed into boxes.

Before the election Desmond Swayne was a minister at the Department for International Development.

However the Conservative MP said that upon this return to work this morning his door pass did not work and that his office had been cleared.

He said that he had heard nothing from the Government about whether he would be continuing as a minister.

“The end?” he tweeted, apparently left in the dark about his own future by his party leadership.

Meanwhile, Grant Shapps has been appointed a junior minister at the Department for International Development after being sacked as chairman of the Conservative party.
