Last surviving MP to serve during World War II, dies aged 93





The last surviving MP from the Second World War has died aged 93.

Ernest Millington, who was also a bomber pilot in the war, was in the House of Commons for Winston Churchill's VE Day speech on May 8, 1945, after winning a by-election the previous month.
He died at his home in France on Saturday. A member of the Left-wing Common Wealth Party, he was MP for Chelmsford between 1945 and 1950 and, when elected, became the youngest MP in Parliament.
