LONDON (Reuters) - Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt was offered the job of defence minister by incoming Prime Minister Boris Johnson but he turned it down, Sky reported.

Johnson, who defeated Hunt in the race for the leadership of their governing Conservative Party, will take office later today and then is due to appoint his senior team.
