UK Defence Secretary Resigns Over Sexual Harassment Allegations

British Defence Secretary, Michael Fallon has tendered his resignation letter over sexual harassment at Westminster.

“A number of allegations have surfaced about MPs in recent days, including some about my previous conduct. Many of these have been false but I accept that in the past I have fallen below the high standards that we require of the armed forces that I have the honour to represent,” Fallon wrote in a resignation letter to Prime Minister Theresa May.

Fallon has served as Defence Minister since 2014 and was seen as a stable figure within the Conservative Party, regularly brought out to defend the government on television and radio.
