'Rennard should be kicked out', says Bridget Harris

The Liberal Democrat peer Lord Rennard should be "kicked out of the party", one of the women who has accused him of sexual harassment has said.

Bridget Harris, a Lib Dem activist, welcomed an apology issued by Lord Rennard on Thursday but said the peer's position within the Lib Dems was untenable.

Lord Rennard, who had previously denied claims of sexual harassment by four activists, admitted "he may well have encroached upon 'personal space'".
