Labour activist Bex Bailey has spoken to Radio four’s PM programme about a critical sexual attack she suffered at a Labour birthday party match in 2011.
She advised Carolyn Quinn that after she later requested for recommendation from a senior member of body of workers throughout the birthday party, she was inspired to not pursue it and that reporting it officially may just “damage” her.
Labour stated: “The Labour Party takes these allegations extremely seriously. It takes great courage for victims of rape to come forward – and all support must and will be made available to them. We would strongly recommend that the police investigate the allegations of criminal actions that Bex Bailey has made. Labour will also launch an independent investigation into claims that a party employee acted improperly over these 2011 allegations.”
