David Cairns resigns

The Daily Telegraph is sticking to its story that David Cairns, Minister of State at the Scotland Office, is poised to resign from the Government in protest at Gordon Brown's troubled premiership and leadership of the Labour Party. The BBC has also picked up on the story, but Downing Street says it has no knowledge of his intentions. Watch this space.

UPDATE: Cairns' resignation has been confirmed by Downing Street. You can read coverage of his statement on BBC Online. No news as yet on who will succeed him as Minister of State at the Scotland Office.
