Former Downing Street press secretary Lizzie Loudon has resurfaced at a lobbying firm created by a former Cameron advisor and a Vote Leave chief.

Hanbury Strategy, formed by Brexiteer Paul Stephenson and Downing Street aide Ameet Gill after the Brexit vote, has recruited Loudon from early July.

It marks a reunion of sorts for Loudon and Stephenson, who worked together on Vote Leave before Loudon moved to Downing Street under Theresa May.

But Loudon quit Number 10 in the run up to the election, going within days of Downing Street director of communications Katie Perrier.

Perrier has also found a new role, re-joining her former firm iNHouse Communications where she will serve as the business' first ever chair.

The appointments come days after the Treasury confirmed the loss one of its' own senior aides - Graham Hook who had worked with Philip Hammond in a number of his previous roles, has taken on a temporary position at the Investment Association.
