Chris Grayling has resigned as a member of the intelligence and security committee six weeks after he was humiliatingly defeated in his attempt to become chair of the parliamentary watchdog.

There was no immediate explanation of why Grayling, a former transport and justice secretary, quit. However, a Labour source said he was “off in a sulk” and had no desire to serve as an ordinary member on the body that scrutinises Britain’s intelligence agencies...
