MP Jack Dromey accuses Daily Mail of 'dirty gutter journalism'

Labour MP Jack Dromey has accused the the Daily Mail newspaper of "dirty gutter journalism" over its reporting of what it says are historical links between him and a campaign group, the Paedophile Information Exchange.

Mr Dromey and his wife, Labour's Deputy Leader Harriet Harman, were prominent figures in the National Council for Civil Liberties - the NCCL - in the 1970s - to which the PIE became affiliated.

Speaking to the BBC's Political Correspondent Iain Watson, Mr Dromey said it was "not true" that he had failed to challenge the paedophile group.
