Mike Hancock: Nick Clegg 'acted immediately' over allegations

MP Mike Hancock has been suspended by the Lib Dems after a report into claims of sexual misconduct towards a female constituent was leaked.

The report, by Nigel Pascoe QC, said the woman deserved "compassion and respect" and that the account she gave was "credible".

A police investigation into the claims - which Mr Hancock denies - found no further action should be taken.

Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg said he acted immediately following the allegations..
