KEIGHLEY MP Robbie Moore has been appointed a minister at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

He said he was "honoured" to take on the role.

Mr Moore has served as a member of the environment, food and rural affairs committee since his election in 2019.

Prior to entering Parliament, he worked as a chartered rural surveyor and farm business consultant.

Mr Moore says: "Getting things done and making a positive difference to our community matters to me and that means becoming involved as much as you can. I am therefore honoured to have been appointed a minister in the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, where I will be working non-stop to protect and enhance our precious natural environment and landscape here in Keighley and Ilkley, our wider area and also across the country."
