Long-serving East of England Euro MP Richard Howitt is leaving his job today.

Labour MEP Howitt has been a part of the European Parliament for the past 22 years, but will now take on a new job as the Chief Executive of the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC).

"Although I'm going onto a good and exciting job to build on what I've done, I will be leaving feeling very, very sad and emotional about the years that have passed," Howitt said.
