  • Misleading statements’ made by Damian Green may actually have just been ‘lies

Theresa May MP has sacked her lifelong friend and de facto deputy Damian Green MP after he made "misleading" statements about allegations that police found pornography on computers in his parliamen.

"I share the concerns that have been raised by police, and I expect those issues be properly investigated", May said in a press conference during her visit to Poland. Her first secretary of state, a man who the BBC reports is essentially her deputy and who theGuardian notes was brought "into Downing Street after her majority was wiped out in June's general election to help shore up her authority", is out after it emerged he lied about porn found on his work computer almost a decade ago.

Sources close to Mr Davis said he had warned Downing Street against sacking Mr Green but in the aftermath of his forced resignation, sources close to the Brexit Secretary said he would not be resigning in protest.

May said she asked Green for his resignation after the investigation concluded he had not been open about the matter.

Green lost his job at the top of government after he was found to have made "misleading" statements about allegations that police found pornography on computers in his parliamentary office in 2008.

A Cabinet Office investigation found two statements by Mr Green, which suggested he was not aware indecent material had been found on his computer, were "inaccurate and misleading".

He said: "I think that is clear sadly from the letter that were exchanged but I think that doesn't mean that it isn't a very, very sad moment for us who are colleagues of Damian who know what a capable minister he was, how committed he was throughout his whole career to the most vulnerable people in society".

The Prime Minister, who asked him to stand down, said she was "extremely sad" at his exit.

"But clearly he did something that was a breach of the ministerial code and that's why Theresa May took the very hard decision that she did".

The Cabinet Office inquiry also found that the claims made by Kate Maltby, the Conservative activist who claimed Green had made unwanted sexual advances towards her, were "plausible".

He is the third Cabinet minister to leave in two months, following the resignations of Michael Fallon amid the Westminster sexual misconduct scandal and Priti Patel over her undisclosed meetings in Israel.
