The Third Northern Powerhouse minister has been appointed since the post was created two years ago.

Jake Berry, the MP for Rossendale and Darwen constituency in Lancashire, was appointed after Andrew Percy resigned after less than a year in post.

Mr Berry said it was a 'huge privilege' to take over.

The Northern Powerhouse is a collaboration of northern cities, including Sheffield, working together for a more equal spread of wealth and power in the country.
