MP resignation letter

North Cornwall MP Scott Mann has resigned as parliamentary private secretary to the Treasury.

He has written to the Prime Minister expressing his concerns about the Brexit white paper, saying: "Over the coming days, weeks and months I fear that elements of the Brexit white paper will inevitably put me in direct conflict with the views expressed by a large section of my constituents. 

"I am not prepared to compromise their wishes to deliver a watered down Brexit." 

Theresa May has ruled out a second Brexit referendum following calls for another vote from former cabinet minister Justine Greening.
