Nick Clegg denies cover-up over Lib Dem 'screw-up' of Rennard allegations


Nick Clegg has denied a cover-up over the alleged behaviour of ex-Lib Dem chief executive, Lord Rennard.

It comes as the party president Tim Farron admitted they "screwed it up as a party".

Mr Clegg said he had only been aware of "indirect and non-specific concerns" about the peer's conduct towards women.

Lord Rennard denies the allegations, which predate Mr Clegg's leadership.

The BBC's Tim Reid reports.
