New ministers at DCMS

Gordon Brown's ministerial reshuffle has brought two new faces to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

Barbara Follett is the new Minister for Culture, Creative Industries & Tourism, replacing Margaret Hodge.

Stephen Carter becomes Minister for Communications, Technology and Broadcasting, a new role shared between DCMS and the Department for Business, Enterprise & Regulatory Reform. Carter, a former chief executive of media regulator Ofcom, has been made a Lord in order to enable him to undertake the position.

Andy Burnham remains at DCMS as Secretary of State.
