Former Prime Minister David Cameron is to step down as a Member of Parliament, triggering a by-election in his constituency, Witney, in Oxfordshire. Cameron, who stepped down as Prime Minister following his defeat in the European Union Referendum in June, has served as an MP since the 2001 General Election. He became Conservative Leader in 2005, and Prime Minister in 2010.

The 49 year-old initially said that he would stay on as a Member of Parliament until the 2020 General Election.
