Lord Rennard questioned on harassment allegations

Former Liberal Democrat chief executive Lord Rennard has been interviewed under caution by police investigating allegations of sexual impropriety.

A number of women have accused the peer of abusing his position by inappropriately touching and propositioning them between 2003 and 2007. He denies the allegations.

Police said on Sunday a 52-year-old man had voluntarily attended a London police station, by appointment.

Lord Rennard's solicitors said he "welcomed his first opportunity to refute the basis" of the allegations, as political correspondent Vicki Young reports.
