And meanwhile in Parliament..........


By Jon Craig, Chief Political Correspondent An outspoken Labour MP has claimed he has received complaints from House of Commons staff about being sexually assaulted by Members of Parliament. John Mann told a committee of MPs he was aware of alleged sexual assaults by MPs, but there was nowhere to go for people making allegations in confidence. He said there was a need for confidential whistleblowing for MPs' staff and potentially MPs who claim they have been subjected to inappropriate sexual misconduct in Parliament.
