A Conservative MP who accepted a police caution over a domestic assault has announced he is standing down at the general election.
David Ruffley said the "protracted media debate" about his private life would not serve the interests of his constituency party.
In a letter to Bury St Edmunds's Conservative Association, Mr Ruffley also said the incident had provoked an "unrelenting orchestrated intrusion into my private life".
