Conservative MP Neil Parish resigns after admitting watching porn in Parliament

Home Affairs Correspondent

Conservative Neil Parish has bowed to pressure and said he will resign as an MP after admitting to watching pornography in the House of Commons on two occasions.

The now former MP for Tiverton and Honiton said he recognised the “furore” and “damage” the scandal was causing to his family and his Tory colleagues and had decided it “just wasn’t worth carrying on”.
