Bea Campbell defends Tom Watson on Westminster sex abuse claims

Bea Campbell defends Tom Watson's actions to highlight sex abuse claims naming high profile figures in Westminster.

She said the "hounds were howling” over his accusations, and that some were trying to silence the Labour deputy leader for defying the Establishment.

In a personal film for This Week, she said: "You and I don’t know what went on around Westminster, we weren't there. But the rage against Zac Goldsmith and Tom Watson for trying to find out is as unseemly as it is routine and predictable."
