Government sources have told the BBC that his departure is not related to recent allegations of inappropriate behaviour.

Last month Mr Garnier was cleared of breaking the ministerial code after a Cabinet Office investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct.

Mr Garnier has tweeted that he is "looking forward to supporting the prime minister's government from the backbenches".

Meanwhile, the Ludlow MP Philip Dunne has also confirmed he's left the front bench after nine-and-a-half years, losing his post as health minister.

BBC Hereford and Worcester

The MP for the Wyre Forest Mark Garnier has been cleared of breaking the Ministerial Code of Conduct after allegations he asked his former secretary to buy sex toys in 2010.

He was under investigation following reports he asked his then secretary Caroline Edmonson to buy sex toys in 2010 and called her "sugar tits".

The Cabinet Office today said there was no evidence to suggest Mr Garnier's conduct since 2016 had breached the Ministerial Code.

It added that it had also looked into the incident in 2010, concluding "there was no dispute about the facts of the incident" but there was a "significant difference of interpretation between the parties".

Its statement said the MP had no intention of causing distress, has apologised unreservedly and the Prime Minister Theresa May considers "a line should be drawn under the issue".
