Brooks Newmark Sunday Mirror story prompts complaint

The Conservative MP Mark Pritchard is to make a formal complaint to the new press regulator about the actions of a freelance journalist working for the Sunday Mirror.

Mr Pritchard was one of several Tories approached by the journalist, who had posed as a young female Conservative supporter on social media.

One of his colleagues, Brooks Newmark, resigned from the government on Saturday, after allegations that he sent explicit images to the journalist.

David Sillito reports.
