Cameron: MacKay is 'right' to go

David Cameron has accepted Conservative MP Andrew MacKay's decision to quit his parliamentary aide post over what his party said was an "unacceptable" expenses claim.

Mr Mackay claimed a full second home allowance on his London address, while his wife, Tory MP Julie Kirkbride, claimed the full allowance for another home.

Mr Cameron told BBC News: "It is not enough just to say the system is to blame. Consequences have to follow."
