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.

A dad-of-three died after dousing himself in petrol and setting it alight while driving on a busy motorway to a custody hearing an inquest has heard.

43 year old Foyzal Islam died instantly when his Mercedes burst into flames at 60mph along the M11 near Cambridge.

The melted remains of a petrol container were discovered in the rear of the car and a second container in the front, alongside a plastic cigarette lighter.

The inquest heard that shortly before his death, Mr Islam from Kettering, had been taken to hospital after overdosing on medication shortly, but claimed it was accidental.

Coroner David Morris recorded that Mr Islam took his own life while suffering from depression.
