Two of Britain's most senior Cabinet ministers resigned on Tuesday

Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid quit Boris Johnson's government.

A move that could spell the end of Prime Minister Boris Johnson's leadership after months of scandals.

Treasury chief Rishi Sunak and Health Secretary Sajid Javid resigned within minutes of each other after a day.

 The prime minister was forced to acknowledge he had to change his story on the way he handled allegations of sexual misconduct by a senior member of his government.

Sunak said "the public rightly expect government to be conducted properly, competently and seriously. "

"I recognize this may be my last ministerial job, but I believe these standards are worth fighting for and that is why I am resigning," he added.

Both Sunak and Javid have been seen as possible leadership contenders within the Conservative Party if Johnson is forced out.

Their departures were a huge blow to the prime minister, because both were in charge of two of the biggest issues.
