Michael Gove: 'Resignation Maria's decision alone'

Michael Gove has said that Maria Miller's decision to resign as culture secretary was hers alone.

Mrs Miller said that the row over her expenses had become a "distraction."

Mrs Miller was cleared of funding a home for her parents at taxpayers' expense, but was told to repay £5,800 of the expenses she claimed.

The independent parliamentary commissioner for standards had previously recommended she repay £45,000.
