Labour has stepped up its investigations into two MPs accused of sexual harassment.
The cases of Ivan Lewis and Kelvin Hopkins have both been referred to an internal disciplinary committee.
Mr Lewis said he would “co-operate fully,” while Mr Hopkins said he was happy to go to the committee to “clear my name”.
The Bury South and Luton North MPs, who both deny the allegations, were suspended by the party in November.
Their cases have now been referred to Labour’s national constitutional committee (NCC), which deals with disciplinary matters and has the power to order expulsion from the party.
