Tory Northants MP: Cameron's resignation a 'tragedy' but 'inevitable'

David Cameron's resignation as Prime Minister is a "tragedy", but "inevitable" a Conservative MP has said.

Michael Ellis praised Mr Cameron's ability to "build bridges" and also the fact that he led the first majority Conservative Government in over 20 years, and said he led the Coalition Government "admirably".

The MP for Northampton North said "calmness and good order" following the outcome of the EU referendum and the volatility of markets as a result.
