Why did Chris Pincher resign?

Several Tory MPs complained about his behaviour to the whips’ office.

In his resignation letter, he admitted he'd “embarrassed myself and other people”.

“I think the right thing to do in the circumstances is for me to resign as deputy chief whip.

"It has been the honour of my life to have served in Her Majesty’s Government.”

It is the second time that he has had to quit the whips' office over sex allegations.

Athlete and Tory activist Alex Story said Pincher attempted to untuck his shirt, massaged his neck and whispered: “You’ll go far in the Conservative Party”.
