Conservative MP Neil Parish has bowed to pressure to say he will resign after admitting to watching pornography in the House of Commons chamber.

The 65-year-old farmer admitted to the BBC on Saturday that he watched adult material twice in Parliament, claiming the first time was accidental after looking at tractors online.

The select committee chairman had initially vowed to continue as MP for Tiverton and Honiton but said he would quit after recognising the “furore” and “damage” he was causing his family and constituency.
