SOUTH Yorkshire-born Tory Justine Greening has been appointed Transport Secretary, in a cabinet reshuffle prompted by the resignation of Defence Secretary Liam Fox.

Ms Greening, 42, who grew up in Rotherham and went to Oakwood Comprehensive, boosts the female representation in David Cameron’s cabinet. The Prime Minister has come under fire for failing to promote women, and Ms Greening becomes only the fifth female member of the 23-strong top team.

She is South Yorkshire’s third cabinet member, after Rotherham-born Foreign Secretary William Hague and Deputy PM and Sheffield Hallam MP Nick Clegg.
