Elliot Johnson's father: 'Lord Feldman should consider his position'

The father of Conservative Party member, Elliot Johnson, 21, who was found dead by a railway track, has told the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme party chairman Lord Feldman should "consider his position".

It comes in the wake of allegations of bullying, harassment and blackmail by youth organiser Mark Clarke - claims he has robustly denied.

Elliot's parents found three suicide notes after his death - one addressed to his parents, another to friends and a third titled "to his bullies and betrayers".

Lord Feldman is facing claims he was first told about the alleged bullying five years ago but insists the first he heard about it was in August this year.
