MP Simon Danczuk suspended by Labour

Labour MP Simon Danczuk has been suspended by the party after newspaper allegations about his private life.

The Sun alleged he exchanged explicit text messages with a 17-year-old girl.

On Twitter, the Rochdale MP said the story was "not entirely accurate" but referred to "an extremely low point" in his life.

Political Correspondent Chris Mason said that Mr Danczuk had made a name for himself, in recent years, for campaigning on issues of child protection.
