Conservative MP Nigel Mills has issued an apology for playing popular mobile puzzle game Candy Crush Saga during a Commons committee hearing.

Pictures were published in the Sun newspaper of the MP playing the game on his tablet during a Work and Pensions Committee session on pensions.

Mr Mills, a committee member, had initially admitted playing and told the newspaper he would try not do it again.

But he later apologised "unreservedly" for his behaviour.

The MP for Amber Valley was said to have played Candy Crush Saga over a period of two-and-a-half hours.

It was during the committee's evidence session on pension reforms, which took evidence from representatives of the pensions and insurance industries ahead of the Autumn Statement.

In a statement on Monday afternoon, the MP for Amber Valley said: "I apologise unreservedly for my behaviour at the committee meeting and realise it fell short of what is expected of a member of parliament. I guarantee it will not happen again."

Mr Mills had initially told the paper that he "probably had a game or two" but said he was "fully engaged" in the hearing and would "try not to do it" again.

'It was boring!'

The House of Commons authorities have now launched an investigation because the photographs in the Sun of Mr Mills playing Candy Crush were a breach of parliamentary rules.  FULL STORY:
