Lib Dem Rennard Questioned Over Sex Claims

Liberal Democrat peer Lord Rennard has been interviewed by police over claims he sexually harassed female party activists.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said a 52-year-old man had voluntarily attended a south London police station by appointment today.
The former Lib Dem chief executive's solicitors said in a statement: "We can confirm that Lord Rennard agreed to meet with the police and that he welcomed his first opportunity to refute the basis of allegations made against him.
"We do not intend to make any further statement until the conclusion of the police inquiry."
Lord Rennard has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing.
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and two other Lib Dem ministers - Danny Alexander and Jo Swinson - were sharply criticised last week in a review into the party's handling of the complaints made against Lord Rennard when he was chief executive of the party.
Businesswoman Helena Morrissey, who conducted the inquiry, said a formal investigation should have been launched when his alleged victims first came forward.
In February it emerged that a number of woman activists and party workers had made allegations of unwanted advances, but when they reported the claims little action was taken.
Mr Clegg said after the review that he took full responsibility for the "flaws" in the handling of allegations against Lord Rennard.
