Labour MP Clive Lewis cleared of sexual harassment claim that he grabbed a woman’s bottom

LABOUR MP Clive Lewis has been cleared of claims that he grabbed a woman’s bottom.

After a party inquiry into the Norwich South MP, the sexual harassment claim was thrown out.

The former frontbencher was put under investigation after a party supporter claimed she was groped by him at Labour’s party conference in Brighton.

She said he gave her backside a “big squeeze” at a Momentum event, claims he denied.

But an internal probe dismissed the allegation, which was made in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal.

Mr Lewis expressed his delight at the news.

He told The Guardian: “I am very pleased to be able to put this behind me and move on.

“I believe it right and proper the Labour party treats all allegations of bullying, harassment and sexual misconduct seriously.”

He went on: “I want to express my gratitude to my wife, friends and constituents who have supported me during recent weeks.

“I look forward very much to continuing my work in parliament, fighting for the people I represent and the city I love.”

Labour MPs Kelvin Hopkins and Ivan Lewis remain under investigation over separate sexual harassment claims.
