Nick Clegg denies Lord Rennard cover-up claims

Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg has denied claims of a cover-up over the alleged inappropriate behaviour of the party's former chief executive, Lord Rennard.

Mr Clegg said he was made aware in 2008 of "indirect and non-specific concerns" about inappropriate behaviour towards women by the peer.

The deputy PM said his office acted to deal with the allegations, which have been strongly denied by Lord Rennard.

Iain Watson reports.
