Brexit: Diplomat's exit 'wise decision' says Redwood

Conservative MP John Redwood welcomes the UK ambassador to the EU's decision to step down, saying the post required someone who "really believed" in Brexit and the UK's future as an independent country.

It follows Sir Ivan Rogers' departure from the role nine months earlier than scheduled and ahead of the start of formal Brexit negotiations expected in the Spring.
