The woman at the centre of allegations against NI21 leader Basil McCrea has said she did not contact the police as she thought she would not be believed.

Ashleigh Murray, 23, a former party worker, said the alleged inappropriate sexual behaviour occurred last year.

Mr McCrea has denied the claims that emerged on polling day in Northern Ireland.

In an interview with the BBC, she said: "Who's going to believe me, someone from my background?"
