Neil Parish has formally resigned as an MP after admitting watching pornography in the Commons.

The ex-Conservative MP is a father of two and a grandfather of two, and had represented the Devon constituency since 2019.

Following the emergence of the allegations, senior ministers hit out at Westminster’s “shameful” culture.

Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries said the situation in Westminster is “getting worse” as she suggested getting a “majority of women” in the Commons could improve it.

This is a breaking story, more to follow.
