Labour MP Clive Lewis has been cleared by the party over allegations of sexual harassment, it emerged today.
The Norwich South MP was accused of giving a 39-year-old woman’s backside a “big squeeze” while hugging her at the Party’s annual conference, which took place in Brighton in September.
He denied the allegation, and today said he was “very pleased to be able to put this behind me and move on.”
Lewis had previously apologised after telling a man to “get on your knees, bitch” during an event at campaign group Momentum’s fringe conference, The World Transformed.
He added: “I believe it right and proper that the Labour Party treats all allegations of bullying, harassment and sexual misconduct seriously.
“I want to express my gratitude to my wife, friends and constituents who have supported me during recent weeks.”
