DS RESIGNATION Damian Green has resigned over claims porn was found on his computer

The Prime Minister said she expected a proper investigation into claims that information was leaked by a former senior officer.

Mr Green has described allegations that he downloaded or viewed pornography on his parliamentary computer as "unfounded and deeply hurtful", but admitted he had not been clear in his past statements on the issue.

The probe was prompted by Ms Maltby's allegations - denied by My Green - but it was later widened to include claims legal pornography had been found on his computer after a police raid on his Commons office in 2008.

"I'm sure she didn't want him to go", Hunt said.

The Cabinet Office investigation did not rule on allegations made by writer Kate Maltby that Mr Green sexually harassed her.

Bob Quick and another retired detective, Neil Lewis, who told the BBC he had been "shocked" by the contents of Mr Green's office computer, are being investigated for possible breaches of the Data Protection Act.

The health secretary was asked by BBC Radio 4′s Today programme on Thursday morning to drop the pretence that Green resigned and was in fact sacked.

"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".

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.

Mr Green's departure from the frontbench has left a major hole at the heart of Mrs May's Government with speculation now growing over who she could appoint as her replacement First Secretary of State.

The letter also said Mr Green, 61, "recognised" he made a female journalist "feel uncomfortable".

Ms Maltby's parents, Colin and Victoria Maltby, said they were "pleased" the Cabinet Office inquiry had concluded.

Pak grants visas to Jadhav's mother, wife
India, however, maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran, where he had business interests after retiring from the navy. Pakistan had initially offered a meeting between Jadhav and his wife on "humanitarian grounds".

Mr Hunt continued: "He lied on a particular incident, yes, I think lots of people who understand the context would appreciate why that might have happened but that doesn't make it any Cabinet ministers to the very highest standards of conduct, rightly, but I think we should remember that those are standards that would probably not apply in many other countries".
