  • David Davis will continue being Brexit Secretary according to sources

Sources close to Mr Davis said he had warned Downing Street against sacking Mr Green but in the aftermath of his forced resignation, sources close to the Brexit Secretary said he would not be resigning in protest.

United Kingdom health minister says it's a "very sad moment" for colleagues of the former deputy PM.

In his resignation letter, in which he said he was "asked to resign", Green responded to Maltby's allegation writing, "I do not recognise the events she described in her article, but I clearly made her feel uncomfortable and for this I apologise".

Mr Davis, now the Brexit Secretary, was Mr Green's boss at the time of the 2008 police raid on his Commons office. He was found to be in breach of the ministerial code.

He is the third Cabinet minister to leave in two months, following the resignations of Michael Fallon amid the Westminster sexual misconduct scandal and Priti Patel over her undisclosed meetings in Israel.

Mr Hunt has already been tipped as a potential successor and he suggested he could be open to such a move, telling BBC Radio 4's Today programme that Cabinet appointments "are a matter for the Prime Minister".

Hence, the tests ability to identify potential abnormalities is limited. Apple is working to beef up its Apple Watch with more health features.

Mr Hunt continued: "He lied on a particular incident, yes, I think lots of people who understand the context would appreciate why that might have happened but that doesn't make it any Cabinet ministers to the very highest standards of conduct, rightly, but I think we should remember that those are standards that would probably not apply in many other countries".

"On this occasion, very, very sadly and I know with a very heavy heart, the Prime Minister took the decision that she had to".

The Prime Minister, who asked him to stand down, said she was "extremely sad" at his exit.

Besides allegations that he kept and watched pornography on his parliamentary computer, Green faces another allegation from writer and Tory activist Kate Maltby.

"The fact that he left for lying, essentially, about pornography on his computer does seem to be the slight get-out to stop potentially the new independent system in parliament that is going to be set up looking into this further", Ms Phillips told Sky News.
