United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May has accepted the resignation of embattled Home Secretary Amber Rudd after a fallout over the Windrush generation scandal, as she failed to explain her role in the treatment and deportation of immigrants, the BBC reports.

The details: Rudd has been criticized over her handling of the immigration crisis that has dominated U.K. headlines in recent weeks. More than 200 members of Parliament signed a letter accusing her of spearheading a policy change “on the hoof” in an effort to overcome the scandal, the Guardian reports.
