Dominic Raab has resigned as deputy prime minister after a damaging report into claims he bullied civil servants was finally published, APA reports citing the Independent.

The findings of Adam Tolley KC’s independent probe landed on the PM’s desk on Thursday morning, but the results were not initially revealed.

In a punchy resignation letter, Mr Raab, who has denied allegations of bullying, said he felt “duty bound” to accept the outcome of the inquiry.

But he also came out fighting, saying the independent investigation had dismissed “all but two” allegations against him. He also described its findings as “flawed” and said had set a dangerous precendent for “good government” by setting the threshold for bullying “so low”.
