In a victim impact statement, former chief whip Andrew Mitchell told of his "acute demoralisation and sense of isolation" leading up to his resignation over the 'Plebgate' affair.
He described being "devastated" to learn of Pc Keith Wallis' email to his deputy John Randall and said it led to a "very difficult" conversation with Prime Minister David Cameron: "During which he told me that he had seen the email and that I would have to go."
I protested my innocence and after a tense conversation lasting around six minutes he [David Cameron] agreed to instigate an investigation through Cabinet Secretary, Sir Jeremy Heywood.
As I understand it, Sir Jeremy's investigation revealed that Mr Wallis's email was not a reliable basis on which to sack me from the Cabinet because of inconsistencies within it.
The story continued to roll in the media for many days, during which I slowly lost the support of many Parliamentary colleagues.
