The change of government means many MPs have changed where they sit in the House of Commons.

The Conservatives are back on the government benches for the first time in 13 years - but now they have been joined by the Liberal Democrats. Labour are on the opposition benches.

Members of the coalition cabinet are sitting on the government front bench - including Prime Minister David Cameron and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg sitting side-by-side.

The remaining Lib Dems are sitting in a block on the government side - opposite where they used to sit.
