European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said he had decided to allocate the Security Union portfolio to the British nominee for the EU executive.

Former British Prime Minister David Cameron nominated Julian King as Britain's representative at the European Commission to replace Jonathan Hill who resigned after Britons voted to leave the bloc on June 23.

King's portfolio will include setting up a European response to the fight against terrorism, organised crime and cybercrime, the Commission said.

King's appointment will now need to be endorsed by the European Parliament.
