Sir Jeffrey Donaldson has quit as leader of the Democratic Unionist Party after being been charged with historical sex offences. The 61-year-old politician is due to appear in court in Newry, Co Down, on April 24 having been arrested and charged in relation to non-recent sexual allegations. A 57-year-old woman has been charged with aiding and abetting additional offences in relation to the same police investigation. The Lagan Valley MP has been suspended from the DUP pending the outcome of the judicial process and East Belfast MP and deputy leader Gavin Robinson has been appointed interim party leader. The DUP said it had received a letter from Sir Jeffrey stating that he had been charged with allegations of a historical nature and that he would be stepping down as leader.
