Nadine Dorries must 'rebuild bridges' to remain as Conservative MP

Nadine Dorries needs to "rebuild bridges" with her constituents and colleagues if she is to remain as a Conservative MP, party officials say.

Ms Dorries met Chief Whip Sir George Young for 15 minutes on Tuesday to explain why she took time off to take part in a reality TV show in Australia.

No final decision was taken on whether she would have the whip restored.
