MP Simon Hart 'astonished' by the scale of abuse
People are being "put off getting involved in politics" by the scale of abuse suffered by MPs and candidates, a Conservative MP has said.
Leading a Westminster debate, Simon Hart said he had been "astonished" by the level of abuse reported by colleagues.
"You find out stuff that you simply didn't think existed," he told his fellow MPs.
