Cameron Feels 'Deeply' For Parents Of Tory Party Activist Who Killed Himself

David Cameron has said he feels "deeply" for the parents of a Tory party activist who killed himself amid allegations of bullying within the party.

The Prime Minister fuelled speculation that Grant Shapps will quit his ministerial job by telling reporters that a statement would be made on the former party chairman later today.

Elliott Johnson's parents have said they believe the 21-year-old would still be alive if Mr Shapps had behaved "responsibly".

Mr Cameron said: "It is a tragic loss of a talented young life. It is not something that any parent should have to go through and I feel for them deeply."

"I feel deeply for his parents."
