Britain’s ambassador to the US Sir Kim Darroch has dramatically quit after being embroiled in a Donald Trump leak storm.

The US President launched a scathing attack branding the ambassador “wacky” after a series of damning indictments were leaked from secret cables over two years.

Sir Kims said it had become “impossible” for him to carry out his role after it emerged he dubbed the White House “uniquely dysfunctional” and said Trump “radiates insecurity”.

He also branded the President “inept” — causing Mr Trump to fire back in a series of blistering tweets calling him a “pompous fool”.
