Clacton MP Douglas Carswell has said he will stand down as an MP and then stand for Ukip in the resulting by-election following his defection from the Tories.
He today announced that he would be leaving the Conservative Party, claiming the party's leadership are "not serious" about the change the UK needs.
If successful, Mr Carswell would become the eurosceptic party's only Westminster MP.
