Bolton West MP Chris Green has resigned from his position as a Parliamentary Private Secretary at the Department for Transport over Brexit.

Mr Green, who worked for transport secretary Chris Grayling, tweeted his resignation letter in which he said: “Brexit must mean Brexit”.

He wrote: "It must be clear to the electorate that, even if we do not fully leave at the end of March 2019, our full independence is gained in time for them to cast their judgment at the following general election."

He continued: "The direction the negotiations had been taking have suggested that we would not really leave the EU and the conclusion and statements following the Chequers summit confirmed my fears.

"I recognise that delivering Brexit is challenging, however I had hoped at tonight's meeting that there would be some certainty that my fears were unfounded, but, instead they have been confirmed.”
