Nick Clegg denies Lord Rennard cover-up

Help

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.
