    Former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has said that outgoing Witney MP David Cameron "will be mortified" with what Theresa May is doing to the Conservative Party. 

    Speaking in the Oxfordshire town in the run-up to the by-election, the MP said Cameron's reason for leaving frontline politics was because he "didn't want to stay in the House of Commons".

    He said: "I haven't spoken to him but my assumption is that in part he is doing that because he is uncomfortable watching the new leader of the Conservative Party take this country in a completely different direction to that which the previous government wanted to."

    The value of the pound has fallen sharply since the EU referendum over worries about the impact of Brexit.

    Oxford-based charity Oxfam says it may need to stop or curtail future aid programmes.
